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


I’m actually not totally disappointed with Tolstoy at this point. I like the juxtaposition that you just mentioned Alexis and it brings about some thoughts. Perhaps Tolstoy can achieve some deeper thought with his stories as apposed to just saying people are bad. People are complex creatures. They want one thing but they go for another. I think Tolstoy’s experimentation with the human psyche is done pretty well here. Either that or I could be completely off and over analyzing it. Over all though I do prefer the writer I’m seeing now then the one I was seeing before.
