Viac o knihe The Lifted Veil and Brother Jacob (Oxford World's Classics) (Eliot, G.)

´She had believed that my wild poet´s passion for her would make me her slave; and that, being her slave, I should execute her will in all things.´ The Lifted Veil was first published in Blackwood´s Magazine in 1859. A dark fantasy woven from contemporary scientific interest in the physiology of the brain, mesmerism, phrenology and experiments in revification it is Eliot´s anatomy of her own moral philsophy - the ideal of imaginative sympathy or the ability to see into others´ minds and emotions. Narrated by an egoccentric, morbid young clairvoyant man whose fascination for Bertha Grant lies partly in her obliquity, the story also explores fiction´s ability to offer insight into the self, as well as being a remarkable portrait of a misdeveloped artist whose visionary powers merely blight his life. The Lifted Veil is now one of the most widely read and critically discussed of Eliot´s works. Published as a companion piece to The Lifted Veil, Brother Jacob is by contrast Eliot´s literary homage to Thackeray, a satirical modern fable that draws telling parallels between eating and reading. Yet both stories reveal Eliot´s deep engagement with the question of whether there are ´necessary truths´ independent of our perception of them and the boundaries of art and the self. Helen Small´s introduction casts new light on works which fully deserve to be read alongside Eliot´s novels.
