About the book:

One of Tolstoys most exquisitely constructed novellas is presented here with The Devil, a further work exploring the powerful and destructive nature of obsession.On learning of Ivan Ilyichs sudden demise, his former colleagues begin vying for promotion; it seems in neither life nor death has Ivan Ilyich made any lasting impression. And, as the author takes us back to Ilyichs early days, we are shown a life of futility, emptiness, and spiritual barrenness. Yet, in the end, Tolstoy reveals Ivan Ilyichs final resolute gesture to come to terms with his mortality and to embrace his impending death. Leo Tolstoy wrote two of Russias greatest novels, Anna Karenina and War and Peace, as well as many short stories and essays.
