內容簡介

no one pitied him as he would have liked to be pitiedAs Ivan Ilyich lies dying he begins to re-evaluate his life, searching for meaning that will make sense of his sufferings. In The Death of Ivan Ilyich and the other works in this volume, Tolstoy conjures characters who, tested to the limit, reveal glorious and unexpected reserves of courage or baseness of a near inhuman kind. Two vivid parables and The Forged Coupon, a tale of criminality, explore class relations after the emancipation of the serfs in 1861 and the connection between anethical life and worldly issues. In Master and Workman Tolstoy creates one of his most gripping dramas about human relationships put to the test in an extreme situation. The Death of Ivan Ilyich is an existential masterpiece, a biting satire that recounts with extraordinary power the finalillness and death of a bourgeois lawyer.In his Introduction Andrew Kahn explores Tolstoys moral concerns and the stylistic features of these late stories, sensitively translated by Nicolas Pasternak Slater.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford Worlds Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
