The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy
7 pages (1750 words)
, Book Report/Review
The third person author, who from time to time points at the false pomp, glory, and recognition that Ivan was happily enjoying, towards the end of the novel grows sympathetic to the soul that was repenting and suffering. Here again, it should be noted that the author brings in a figure of all good to build a trust in humanity.
