Description

Leo Tolstoy, Nathan Haskell Dole (Translator).

Leo Tolstoy, Nathan Haskell Dole (Translator). Benjamin Ricketson Tucker (Translator). Ivan Ilyich is the story of a respected, gregarious and a healthy middle aged court justice who suddenly sickens and dies. He leaves behind a wife (a woman Ivan disliked), two grown up children, and a few startled s whose reaction to his death range from better-him-than-me to. It contains the following stories

of Benjamin R. Tucker and Nathan Haskell Dole. Pick up this 317-page splendid collection of some of Leo Tolstoy's best stories including the celebrated "The Death of Ivan Ilyich

While the other stories were very, very good, the Death of Ivan Ilyich was outstanding. Initially, I thought it was going to be gruesome and depressing. Pick up this 317-page splendid collection of some of Leo Tolstoy's best stories including the celebrated "The Death of Ivan Ilyich. There are six other stories, the most significant of which is perhaps the sad "Polikushka" which is just about as long as "Ivan Ilyich" and to my mind a bit better in some respects.

Two other early stories, ‘The Raid’ (1853) and ‘The Woodfelling’ (1855), foreshadow later works by Tolstoy that will look realistically at warfare and cast doubts on its glory; the former i. The preoccupation with violence and death shown in these early stories is still in Tolstoy’s mind half a century later, as we can see in two very late works, ‘After the Ball’ (1903) and ‘The Forged Coupon’ (1905). The first of these is a remarkable story that was written in a single day.

One thing that Leo Tolstoy could never be accused of was being a minimalist

One thing that Leo Tolstoy could never be accused of was being a minimalist. He is best known for the massive novel 'Anna Karenina' and the even more massive 'War and Peace'. Almost all of his fiction seems to be an attempt to pack in as much panoramic life as possible. Now, unfortunately I have probably confused you but that is how The Death of Ivan Ilych is, while entertaining from the beginning half way through you realize that the story is not about what you thought it was, it is in a different place, and at that point you are captivated.

The title story of this collection concerns Ivan Ilyich, a man "whose life is most simple and ordinary and most terrible". The other stories cover a wide range of milieux, and in "Hadji Murat"" the eponymous hero represents the kind of "natural" man Tolstoy admired: Murat, a Chechen Muslim leader, is devout, brave and fierce, as opposed to the dull, hypocritical Tsar; but Murat is killed, senselessly, as a result of a misunderstanding.

INTRODUCTION by Ann Pasternak Slater. Master and man. Endnotes. Yet both stories also draw on experiences described in his earliest work and resolve some of the questions overwhelming him during his crisis of faith in the 1880s. The story begins in late January 1854. Tolstoy was twenty-five years old and on his way home from fighting in the Caucasus.

"The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories" is a collection of short stories that includes "The Invaders" (or "The Raid"),"The Wood-Cutting Expedition," "Three Deaths," "Polikushka," "The Death of Ivan Ilyich," "After the Ball," and "The Forged Coupon." The most famous and superbly written of these is "The Death of Ivan Ilyich," which Tolstoy wrote later in his life. It tells a tale revolving around a man in his 40s who has spent his entire life climbing the social ladder in Russia. Barely tolerant of his wife and generally indifferent to the other people around him, Ivan has a minor accident hanging curtains in a new apartment that proves to be a terminal injury. As his life slowly and painfully spirals inexorably toward death, Ivan struggles immensely against what he perceives to be an unfair fate. Only in the end does he see how he might have lived differently and authentically. In this and the other short stories by Tolstoy, the themes of loss and death are deeply explored and developed by a brilliant and immortalized writer.

The final story, “The Forged Coupon“ is a real education in how one incident can affect so many lives. It inspired me to make a fourth attempt at War and Peace. Very readable.
