The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Master and Man

Modern Library Classics
$8.49
($9.95)
This new edition combines Tolstoy&#8217;s most famous short tale, <i>The Death of Ivan Ilyich</i>, with a less well known but equally brilliant gem, <i>Master and Man</i>, both newly translated by Ann Pasternak Slater. Both stories confront death and the process of dying: In <i>Ivan Ilyich</i>, 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&#8217;s meaning are nowhere more movingly and deftly explored than in these two tales. <br><br>This unique edition also includes a critical Introduction and extensive notes by Ann Pasternak Slater, a Fellow at St. Anne&#8217;s College, Oxford.<br><br><br><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
