Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition combines Tolstoys most famous short tale, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, with a less well known but equally brilliant gem, Master and Man, both newly translated by Ann Pasternak Slater. Both stories confront death and the process of dying: In Ivan Ilyich, a bureaucrat looks back over his life, which suddenly seems meaningless and wasteful, while in Master and Man, a landowner and servant must each confront the value of the other as they brave a devastating snowstorm. The quintessential Tolstoyan themes of mortality, spiritual redemption, and lifes meaning are nowhere more movingly and deftly explored than in these two tales.

This unique edition also includes a critical Introduction and extensive notes by Ann Pasternak Slater, a Fellow at St. Annes College, Oxford.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Tolstoy's arresting short novel, in which a man confronting his own untimely death grapples with the meaning — and meaninglessness — of his own life, is a spiritual masterpiece and one of Tolstoy's most widely read works.
