Analysis of Leo Tolstoy and his work, The Death of Ivan Ilyich

Part 1, Ch. 1

So after reading a bit, I have to say the use of French language is extremely confusing. It becomes a major nuisance having to check the definition of these words repeatedly. On the other hand, this may sound odd but I love all their names, Pavlovna especially.

The first chapter begins with Pavlovna’s introduction. Pavlovna lives in Saint Petersburg and seems to have a love of throwing parties and engaging in contact with the upper class crowds. She’s close with the Empress of Russia and has a number of princes attending her party.

Pavlovna speaks with Prince Vassily about setting his son up with some nobel women.
