The Lifted Veil: (Annotated) (English Edition) download gratisDoor: George Eliot
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, possible life after death, and the power of fate. The novella is a significant part of the Victorian tradition of horror fiction, which includes such other examples as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1818), Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897).

sympathieën voor The Lifted Veil: (Annotated) (English Edition)
holocaust literature tends to be pretty similar, understandably, as people's lives were so similar by control in the camps. this book is no exception, which is not meant to take anything away from it by any means. every work by holocaust survivors is certainly valid, important, and should not be dismissed or forgotten. this book is very well written, and i found to be surprisingly hopeful, almost seeming to look beyond some of the evils taking place within the camps to find the hope needed to survive. for me, what separated this work from others, like, diary of anne frank, was actually the nobel peace prize acceptance speech included in the back of this edition. it is on point and inspiring. human rights can be an easy thing to overlook or unknowingly undermine in many areas of life. it's inspiring to read of people like mr. wiesel working effortlessly to make sure we hear the voice of the voiceless.
