459 thought on “The Death of Ivan Ilych

  1. Throughout recorded time, humans have wondered about the afterlife and its relationship to this life Tolstoy takes a spin on that and focuses on the interface between the two What exactly happens as one approaches death Few have experienced near death, but no one has experienced death fully What is dying like Tolstoy provides his answer in this short depiction of a Russian lawyer Ivan Ilych He lives a normal, even boring, life and suddenly gets sick His performance at work suffers, and his famil [...]


  2. We forget Tolstoy s mastery of the short story This one is about everyman Ivan Ilych is the Russian equivalent of John Doe, or better yetJoe Shmo , his petty life and fear of death and annihilation Is there redemption Read the book It will only an afternoon from start to finish May you have a transformative experience, as I did


  3. This book looks like someone printed a term paper on their dated personal printer with ancient font, neglected to add any appropriate formatting, like paragraph breaks, and bound it Total joke I m shocked this came from but I should have thought twice at the price The only quality thing about the book is the cover is made from good paper stock.


  4. Five stars for the work, three for the presentation If you think Tolstoy can only produce blockbusters like War and Peace and Anna Karenina, I assure you he can pack just as much meaning into a novella like Ivan Ilyich, which can be read easily in barely an hour Not that you should try to speed read your way through it careful reading will be rewarded.This Kindle edition is not up to the standard of another Tolstoy book I just read, the Carefully Crafted Classics version of Anna Karenina In the [...]


  5. This is a good read for a day It describes the life of Ivan Ilych, from birth to death with much focus on the death part of course I liked this story for the realistic look of death it presents People do not want their loved ones to die, but when they are suffering so, they want that suffering to end Along with that, Ivan has not lived a bad life, but he has not lived the most charmed one either He is not some horrible ogre getting a miserable end but instead he is a normal man who might be suff [...]


  6. Brilliantly captures the rage and impotence of a man confronted with his own mortality This novella starts slowly but as the net begins to tighten around Ivan Ilych it becomes hard to put down His bursts of irrational hope in the face of death are heart rending His recognition that much of his adult life has been wasted chasing after status gives him a sense of nobility at a time when his dignity has been taken from him In accompanying Ivan Ilych to the very edge of the abyss we look into our ow [...]


  7. I bought this on Kindle because it was mentioned at the beginning of Atul Gawande s book about mortality and end of life I found it fascinating, as it shows just how little people s attitudes to the sick and dying have changed since mid C19th Russia It was of particular relevance to me as I had a similar accident to Ivan Ilyich which left me in chronic pain and disability I found this novella by Tolstoy fascinating, especially Ivan s realisation as his condition worsens that his family and frien [...]


  8. I m speechless now, having essentially read this in one sitting It will change the way you view death, that s for sure A philosophical masterpiece.
