The two novellas in this volume-one Gothic, the other satiric-offer dark counterpoint to the warm humanism of Eliot's novels. The Lifted Veil is the story of Latimer, a mindreader with psychic powers. His brother's fiance, Bertha, is the one person whose mind remains closed to him, arousing an undeniable curiosity, until his brother dies and he and Bertha marry-when he can finally see her intentions. In Brother Jacob, David Faux is driven by self-interest and greed to create a false life for himself as a confectioner in Jamaica. To David's surprise, it is his idiot brother, Jacob, who proves to be his nemesis.
This edition includes an introduction that places the novellas within the context of modern psychology and relates them to Eliot's longer fiction.
