The Death of Ivan Ilyich: And, Master and Man

by

The Death of Ivan Ilyich: And, Master and Man Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition combines Tolstoy’s 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 life’s 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. Anne’s College, Oxford.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

A new translation of two Tolstoy masterpieces includes The Death of Ivan Ilyich, in which a peaceful public official in the Russian provinces has his life permanently changed by a serious illness that no doctor can accurately diagnose, as well as Master and Man, in which a master and a servant confront their relationship, role in life, and value during a devastating blizzard. 20,000 first printing.
