Summary of The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories Summary of The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories Reviews for The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories An Excerpt from The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories
Here are some of Tolstoy’s extraordinary short stories, from “The Death of Ivan Ilyich”—in a masterly new translation—to “The Raid,” “The Wood-felling,” “Three Deaths,” “Polikushka,” “After the Ball,” and “The Forged Coupon,” all gripping and eloquent lessons on two of Tolstoy’s most persistent themes: life and death. More experimental than his novels, Tolstoy’s stories are essential reading for anyone interested in his development as one of the major writers and thinkers of his time.
