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

The Devil

We see in this short story just like in “The Death of Ivan Ilych” that there is a death. Eugene and his brother are left a rather large inheritance from their father’s death. But the conflict that we see is whether or not the boys decide that they want to take the inheritance because with it comes a great deal of debt that their father left them with. So far, the text is easy to read and understand. I am curious to see how the story develops and whether or not the boys decide to take the inheritance and get involved with this sticky situation.

One thought on “The Devil

  1. Judging by Tolstoy’s previous works, I feel like the brothers are more than definitely going to take the inheritance. Although he can always prove me wrong.
