Ivan Ilyich (Ilyich is a patronymic, his surname is Golovin) is a highly regarded official of the Court of Justice, described by Tolstoy as, "neither as cold and formal as his elder brother nor as wild as the younger, but was a happy mean between them-an intelligent, polished, lively, and agreeable man."[3] As the story progresses, he becomes more and more introspective and emotional as he ponders the reason for his agonizing illness and death. Praskovya Fedorovna Golovin is Ivan's unsympathetic wife. She is characterized as self-absorbed and uninterested in her husband's struggles unless they directly affect her personally."

It is just a social obligation. This annotated edition includes a biography and critical essay.

THE DEATH OF IVAN ILYCH By Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude I During an interval in the Melvinski trial in the large building of the Law Courts the members and public prosecutor met in Ivan Egorovich Shebek's private room, where the conversation turned on the celebrated Krasovski case. Fedor Vasilievich warmly maintained that it was not subject to their jurisdiction, Ivan Egorovich maintained the contrary, while Peter Ivanovich, not having entered into the discussion at the start, took no part in it but looked through the *Gazette* which had just been handed in. "Gentlemen," he said, "Ivan Ilych has died!" "You don't say so!" "Here, read it yourself," replied Peter Ivanovich, handing Fedor Vasilievich the paper still damp from the press. Surrounded by a black border were the words: "Praskovya Fedorovna Golovina, with profound sorrow, informs relatives and friends of the demise of her beloved husband Ivan Ilych Golovin, Member of the Court of Justice, which occurred on February the 4th of this year 1882. the funeral will take place on Friday at one o'clock in the afternoon." Ivan Ilych had been a colleague of the gentlemen present and was liked by them all. He had been ill for some weeks with an illness said to be incurable. His post had been kept open for him, but there had been conjectures that in case of his death Alexeev might receive his appointment, and that either Vinnikov or Shtabel would succeed Alexeev. So on receiving the news of Ivan Ilych's death the first thought of each of the gentlemen in that private room was of the changes and promotions it might occasion among themselves or their acquaintances. "I shall be sure to get Shtabel's place or Vinnikov's," thought Fedor Vasilievich. "I was promised that long ago, and the promotion means an extra eight hundred rubles a year for me besides the allowance." "Now I must apply for my brother-in-law's transfer from Kaluga," thought Peter Ivanovich. "My wife will be very glad, and then she won't be able to say that I never do anything for her relations." "I thought he would never leave his bed again," said Peter Ivanovich aloud. "It's very sad." "But what really was the matter with him?" "The doctors couldn't say -- at least they could, but each of them said something different. When last I saw him I though he was getting better." "And I haven't been to see him since the holidays. I always meant to go." "Had he any property?" "I think his wife had a little -- but something quiet trifling." "We shall have to go to see her, but they live so terribly far away." "Far away from you, you mean. Everything's far away from your place." "You see, he never can forgive my living on the other side of the river," said Peter Ivanovich, smiling at Shebek. Then, still talking of the distances between different parts of the city, they returned to the Court.

This new edition combines Tolstoy’s most famous short tale, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, with a less well known but equally brilliant gem, Master and Man, both newly translated by Ann Pasternak Slater. Both stories confront death and the process of dying: In Ivan Ilyich, a bureaucrat looks back over his life, which suddenly seems meaningless and wasteful, while in Master and Man, a landowner and servant must each confront the value of the other as they brave a devastating snowstorm. The quintessential Tolstoyan themes of mortality, spiritual redemption, and life’s meaning are nowhere more movingly and deftly explored than in these two tales. This unique edition also includes a critical Introduction and extensive notes by Ann Pasternak Slater, a Fellow at St. Anne’s College, Oxford.

This novel of love, adventure, and male rivalry on the frontiers of nineteenth-century Russia -- completed in 1862, when Tolstoy was in his early thirties -- has always surprised readers who know Tolstoy best through the vast, panoramic fictions of his middle years. Unlike those works, The Cossacks is lean and supple, economical in design and execution.

"I want to begin and finish something new, either the 'death of a judge' or 'the diary of a madman,'" wrote Count Leo Tolstoy in his diary entry of 27 April 1884. What emerged two years later was The Death of Ivan Ilich, a short novel in which Tolstoy depicts the thoughts of an ordinary man who, on discovering he is gravely ill, begins for the first time to contemplate the meaning of life and death - questions similar to those pondered by Tolstoy during his own spiritual crisis. Yet while The Death of Ivan Ilich is generally regarded as the Russian writer's crowning literary achievement during the last thirty years of his life, until now no book-length study has been devoted to it. With this new entry in Twayne's Masterworks Studies series, Gary R. Jahn ably fills that gap in the scholarship on Tolstoy. Here readers will find a straightforward explanation of the novel's historical, literary, and critical significance and a well-crafted, chapter-by-chapter analysis of the literary techniques, patterns, and themes Tolstoy employed in writing his text. Invoking an inventive and engaging strategy, Jahn asks the reader to approach the text from an ironic or "reversed" standpoint - that is, to view what seems literal as figurative and vice versa - with an eye toward discovering the multiple patterns of organization and allusion permeating The Death of Ivan Ilich. Jahn's exploration of the critical response to the novel puts the emphasis on English-language scholarship, but takes foreign-language commentary into account as well. A solid, well-organized presentation that illuminates as it challenges, The Death of Ivan Ilich: An Interpretation is sure to be welcomed as an essential guide to understanding and appreciating Tolstoy's great short novel.
