Description

Hailed as one of the world’s supreme masterpieces on the subject of death and dying, Leo Tolstoy’s “The Death of Ivan Ilyich” is the story of a worldly careerist, a high court judge who has never given the inevitability of his death so much as a passing thought. But one day, death announces itself to him, and to his shocked surprise he is brought face to face with his own mortality.

How, Tolstoy asks, does an unreflective man confront his one and only moment of truth? This novella was the artistic culmination of a profound spiritual crisis in Tolstoy’s life, a nine-year period following the publication of Anna Karenina during which he wrote not a word of fiction. A thoroughly absorbing and, at times, terrifying glimpse into the abyss of death, it is also a strong testament to the possibility of finding spiritual salvation.

Also included in this volume are “The Forged Coupon,” “After the Dance,” “My Dream,” “There Are No Guilty People,” and “The Young Tsar.”
