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

Fantasy Land

I believe no one can really prepare for death, but I think Ivan acts appropriately when he decides to approach his life (having a positive attitude). However, as the story goes on Ivan’s view of death changes and he goes from fear to joy (which I can still not understand). Ivan,cowardly, decides to avoid death which results in further loneliness and unhappiness. If only Ivan would accept his death and just enjoy himself for the remainder or his life. But I guess what I am saying is easier said than done.
