The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories

Leo Tolstoy
Nicolas Pasternak Slater and Edited by Andrew Kahn

Oxford World's Classics

  • A new translation of one of Tolstoy's most famous novellas, together with five other late, great stories.
  • A unique selection of tales on moral themes which together explore philosophical and social questions in the most powerful, universal fashion, demonstrating Tolstoy's artistry and deepest concerns.
  • 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' is rightly regarded as a masterpiece, a searing depiction of mortality translated here with accuracy and sensitivity.
  • The wide-ranging Introduction draws on important new research on the impact of philosophy and science on Tolstoy's view of what it means to be human; it considers the historical and social context of the works, their thematic concerns, and their qualities of form and characterization.
  • The edition includes a useful chronology, up-to-date bibliography, and notes.
