Hailed as one of the world's supreme masterpieces on the subject of death and dying, The Death of Ivan Ilyichis 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 short novel was the artistic culmination of a profound spiritual crisis in Tolstoy's life, a nine-year period following the publication of Anna Kareninaduring 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. From the Paperback edition.… (mer)

«Este livro tão breve, uma das maiores obras-primas do espírito humano, tem sido, desde a sua publicação, um motivo de controvérsia para a crítica: trata-se de uma obra sobre a morte ou de uma obra que nega a morte?» António Lobo Antunes A Morte de Ivan Ilitch de Lev Tolstoi

Summer 2018, Audiobook:

I wanted to love this one more than I actually did end up loving it. It's hard to like Ivan Ilych, which I think is a large part of the point of this book. He makes a lot of not-great choices, which alienate him from everyone except coworkers, and doesn't really even engender them to have affection, so much as just genial respect for him. I don't regret picking this up at the steal of a deal sale price, but I am glad I didn't end up paying full price for it. ( )

Tolstoy's look at a man who is dying. We do not what has caused Ivan Ilyich long slide to death, yet we know what he thinks and feels about it. ( )

It's impossible to review this book, and tremendously strange (and yet, amusing) to me that the reason that pops into my mind is "I'm not worthy!" ala Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World. It's no accident that Tolstoy is a literary giant, and even (especially?) in this most slender of his works, it is easy to see why. I am not worthy, indeed, but I am grateful. ( )

I grabbed this last week as Tolstoy is one of those authors who you just have to read and I didn't know where to start. Rather than jumping in at the deep end and regretting it I decided that a novella was the place to go to. This edition of The Death of Ivan Ilyich also contains The Devil with both it's endings and some background on Tolstoy himself. The whole book is only about 160 pages long so I decided I had nothing to lose and jumped right in.

I'll start with The Death of Ivan Ilyich, which is basically a commentary on life and what we achieve during our time on the earth. I have to say I had my doubts about this. I don't buy into the whole concept of living every day as if it is your last on earth, its just no something I see as being possible. This book has not changed my outlook in this respect but it does bring up some interesting emotions.

Ivan Ilyich has everything that should mean that he has had a meaningful and pleasant life. He is successful and well regarded in his field and community, he is also fairly wealthy. All is well until he has an accident that he laughs off. From then on in things slowly start to go awry with his health and he succumbs to an illness I would say sounds a lot like cancer. As he is dying he is in a lot of anguish both physically and mentally and this leads him to contemplate if he spent his life chasing the wrong things. Did he heave too much importance on gaining material things instead of spiritual development?

This is the exact thing that grabbed my attention and it has to be said it really got into my head a bit. I can really see the similar thinking to some Buddhist and Eastern spiritual books that I have read.

The Devil is a very different tale all together and legend has it that Tolstoy wrote this while cheating on his wife and had to keep it hidden from her lest he was caught out. The tale is an interesting one but not a huge amount really grabbed me until the closing sections of the book when things get a little crazy.

I think its clear to see that Tolstoy was hugely tormented by his feelings for 2 women and as much as he tried to fight his emotions he ultimately succumbed to them. I liked the fact that there were two different endings. ( )

The light ridicule with which it commences and the black horror in which it terminates... are alike suggestive of the Thackeray of Russia.
