Overview

A novella by Leo Tolstoy, one of the masterpieces of his late fiction.

Ivan Ilyich Golovin, a high court judge in St. Petersburg with a wife and family, lives a carefree life and like everyone he is aware of, he lives a life spent almost entirely in climbing the social ladder, and his life begins to amass more hypocrisy as it goes on. Enduring life with a wife whom he often finds too demanding, he works his way up to be a magistrate focusing more and more on his work as family life becomes more miserable.

While hanging curtains for his new home one day, Ivan Ilyich falls awkwardly and hurts his side. As Ilyich's discomfort increases, his behavior towards his family becomes more irritable. His wife finally insists that he visit a physician. The physician cannot pinpoint the source of his malady, but soon it becomes clear that his condition is terminal. He is brought face to face with his mortality, and realizes that although he knows of it, he does not truly grasp it.

    An excellent work of morality

    The Death of Ivan Ilych may be short, but not simple. Immense imagery describing morality and our place in this world is ever present and somewhat haunting.
