It later appeared in Twice-Told Tales, a collection of short stories by Hawthorne published in 1837. Hawthornes inspiration for this story may have been a true event. A clergyman named Joseph Moody of York, Maine, nicknamed Handkerchief Moody, accidentally killed a friend when he was a young man and wore a black veil from the mans funeral until his own death.

The story concerns the minister of a small town who suddenly and inexplicably begins wearing a black veil that hangs from his forehead and covers his eyes and nose. As one charater in the story says, He has changed himself into something awful, only by hiding his face. Hawthorne thus creates a dramtic story based around two of his common themes - the effects of secrecy and guilt.
