“The Lifted Veil,” by George Eliot (1819–1880). George Eliot (neé Mary Ann Evans), perhaps best-known for her novel Middlemarch, offers up in The Lifted Veil a Gothic fantasy about a young clairvoyant, Latimer. Latimer marries his brother’s beautiful widow, Bertha, but his telepathic powers tell him that she really hates him and wishes him dead. Bertha’s maid, Mrs. Archer, confirms this after she herself dies and is revived. Latimer’s travels take him all over Central Europe before his own predicted death on September 20th, 1850. The Lifted Veil is a work of psychological fiction of surpassing power.
