There are themes in life that everyone goes through at one point or another These universal themes however are experienced in different orders As in In the Name of the Father sometimes it takes the death of a loved one to bring meaning to ones life In the case of The Death of Ivan Ilyitch though it is his own death that is dealt with Ivan lived a pleasant life attending law school being in the company of high society He did some things that he questioned at first for the acts made him feel a bit disgraceful He saw that the same acts did not bother other men and therefore put them out of his mind He never questioned himself why these acts were distasteful or why these men werent hounded by their inner voices of shame He went along in life not taking anything from it to learn and to prosper as a good person After graduating law school he sowed his wild oats as Tolstoy puts it among an aristocratic society He moved up in rank and earned a raise in salary This new power although not taken advantage of was accessible in Ilyitchs eyes and hence the mere thought of corruption existed as a tool for possible future use He married not because of love but because he felt it would be an asset to him This lack of self value is an example of ignorance that produces a person with no meaning in life He had some children and during his wifes pregnancy there were times that she grew irritable Ivan couldnt deal with these times and instead of finding why she was in such a state he withdrew himself from his responsibility as a husband into his office life He found married life to be more of a burden than an experience of life and never tried to fix what was unbearable He took life as it
