The Death of Ivan Illyich is a book about a mans struggle with the idea that men are not as invincible as they seem and that we all must come to terms with the one very thing that none of us can escape from and that is death We may think about death in secondary terms or we may never think about death at all Therefore death is generally held as the fate of men as a group of beings and it never becomes personal until one has experienced it At the very end of ones life one becomes melancholy and realizes many things that never before were seen or understood and it is then that they understand the real life drama of death and what their life has meant and stood for that their work in vanity was exerted The pain was too enormous that it overtook Ivan Illyich and beckoned him from his everyday activities He asked him self at the end of his journey What does it all mean Why has it happened Its inconceivable inconceivable that life was so senseless and disgusting And if it really was so disgusting and senseless why should I have to die and die in agony Something must be wrong Perhaps I did not live as I should have it suddenly occurred to him But how could that be when I did everything one is supposed to This exactly pinpoints the meaning of the novel and this exactly is the authors purpose in writing this novel It is to this meaning that the author contributes through diction syntax and other forms of literary elements Therefore examining all elements we see a thoroughly complete and rounded out novel illustrated and brought to life through some of the most ingeniously empowered forms of literary components It would take pages and pages to discuss Leo Tolstoys ways of achieving his purpose in his novel The Death of Ivan
