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, the possibility of life after death, and the power of fate. The novella is a significant part of the Victorian tradition of horror fiction.

Latimer recalls the first time he knew for certain he could see in to the future.
