George Eliot's "The Lifted Veil" was first published in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine in 1859 and has become one of the author's most widely read and critically discussed stories. Told from the point of view of a young, egocentric, and morbid clairvoyant man. Latimer. It is a dark fantasy portrait of an artist whose visionary powers merely blight his life. The story reflected the scientific interest of the time in the physiology of the brain, mesmerism, phrenology, and experiments in revivifaction. It is also a reflection of the author's moral philosophy.
