The Death of Ivan Ilyich-logo

The Death of Ivan Ilyich

Leo Tolstoy

Ivan Ilyich, a high court judge, becomes seriously ill and faces a long and gruelling battle with death. The Death of Ivan Ilyich is more than a story about death, however. It leads the reader through a pensive, metaphysical exploration of the reason for death and what it means to truly live. German philosopher Martin Heidegger refers to the novella as an illustration of Being towards death. Read in Russian, unabridged.
