The Lifted Veil is a novella by George Eliot, first published in 1859. Quite unlike the realistic fiction for which Eliot is best known, The Lifted Veil explores themes of extrasensory perception, the essence of physical life, possible life after death, and the power of fate. The novella is a significant part of the Victorian tradition of horror fiction, which includes such other examples as Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897).

The Lifted Veil

The unreliable narrator, Latimer, believes that he is cursed with an otherworldly ability to see into the future and the thoughts of other people.

The unreliable narrator, Latimer, believes that he is cursed with an otherworldly ability to see into the future and the thoughts of other people. His unwanted "gift" seems to stem from a severe childhood illness he suffered while attending school in Geneva. Latimer is convinced of the existence of this power, and his two initial predictions do come true the way he has envisioned them: a peculiar "patch of rainbow light on the pavement" and a few words of dialogue appear to him exactly as expected. Latimer is revolted by much of what he discerns about others' motivations.Latimer becomes fascinated with Bertha, his brother's cold and coquettish fiancée, because her mind and motives remain atypically closed to him. After his brother's death, Latimer marries Bertha, but the marriage disintegrates as he recognizes Bertha's manipulative and untrustworthy nature. Latimer's friend, scientist Charles Meunier, performs a blood transfusion from himself to Bertha's recently deceased maid. For a few moments the maid comes back to life and accuses Bertha of a plot to poison Latimer. Bertha flees and Latimer soon dies as he had himself foretold at the start of the narrative.

A first-person narrator named Latimer announces that his end is fast approaching and so he will use what time he has left to "the strange story of my experience." So what the reader is perusing becomes, essentially, is the final testament of a dying man. It is what makes this final testament compelling enough to read on which the novel lives or dies. The central question becomes what was so strange about Latimer's life that it is worth using any of my hours to read.Cue the squiggly lines which indicates a flashback in cinematic form. And if this were a modern day movie, the flashback would indicate that this is going to be the origin story of a superhero since the movement backward in time takes the reader all the way back to when a nineteen-year-old Latimer realized that he had a superpower. It is not such an origin story, of course, and it is not referred to as a superpower. It is, however, termed by the narrator as "superadded consciousness." The powerful addition to normal, everyday consciousness is the power to see future events taking place before they actually occur. The initial presentation of this ability occurs when he has a vision of being introduced to Bertha Grant, his older brother's bride-to-be. A very short time later, the vision plays out in reality just as it had inside his vision. Except that in his vision, he didn't faint.That the first occurrence of this power which has apparently lain dormant for nearly two decades before manifesting is engendered by seeing a woman in his vision that he has never seen before, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Latimer's strange story is going to focus at least a little on his own affection for his brother's fiancé. And, in fact, Latimer becomes infatuated and fixated on Bertha to the point that today he might even be suspected of being a stalker. Bertha doesn't think so, however. She is actually quite entertained and pleased by the romantic attentions of two brothers. Even so, she projects an attitude of indifference. And then Latimer has another vision. This time he is not seeing mere minutes into the future, but many years. And Bertha is projecting something far different than indifference. With a vicious malevolence in her voice, she suggests quite strongly that it would better for everyone if he would be so kind as to go somewhere and kill himself. Tough words, to be sure, but there a kicker: in this future, Bertha is not his brother's wife, but his own!
