The Death of Ivan Ilyich (Paperback)

One of the most exquisitely constructed novellas by Tolstoy is presented alongside "The Devil," a further work exploring the powerful and destructive nature of obsession The judge Ivan Ilyich Golovin has spent his life in the pursuit of wealth and status, devoting himself obsessively to work and often neglecting his family in the process. When, after a small accident, he fails to make the expected recovery, it gradually becomes clear that he is soon to die. Ivan Ilyich then starts to question the futility and barrenness of his previous existence, realizing to his horror, as he grapples with the meaning of life and death, that he is totally alone. Includes pictures and an extensive section on Tolstoy's life and works.
