This PowerPoint includes a thorough overview of Tolstoy's famous novel "The Death of Ivan Ilych." It includes background information (about the author, time period, values in the story, etc.) in order to help students understand the context the book was written in. It also includes an in-depth overview of the plot of the novel to help students through this complex, multi-layer story. At the end, there is a list of themes found in the novel and an essay prompt instructing students to write a literary analysis essay on one.
I use this every year in my World Literature class and it has been incredibly helpful for both myself and students. I hope you find it just as useful!
