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

Mother Knows Best

Ultimately I think Eugene’s mother is going to come out as the winner in this situation. But will she have the ultimate power? I don’t think so. Eugene in the end will fulfill what he wants to fulfill to make himself happy. He wants to be with the streetwalker.

His mom will have power in the sense of pushing him towards this, but in the end he wants this.

– Nelson
