9780146001451: Death of Ivan Ilyich, The (Penguin Classics 60s S.)

"Ivan Ilych's life had been most simple and most ordinary and therefore most terrible." Written shortly after his conversion to Christianity, The Death of Ivan Ilyich is one of Tolstoy's masterpieces in fiction. A man facing death is forced to reconcile the contradictions of his own existence and his fear of the unknown in what may or may not exist after life.

Review:

"[This book] is usually regarded as an amazing narrative of the experience of dying, a search for the meaning of death. It is all that, and more: it's a great questioning of what is and what ought to be in a human life." --Nadine Gordimer

He was known for his generosity to the peasants.His best known novels are War and Peace (1869), which Tolstoy regarded as an epic rather than a novel, and Anna Karenina (1877). His work was admired in his time by Dostoyevsky, Checkov, Turgenev, and Flaubert, and later by Virginia Woolf and James Joyce.
