Tolstói e as lições da morte

Reserve alguns minutos para ler o artigo A Night in Arzamas – How Tolstoy’s obsession with mortality became a teachable moment.

O texto fala da presença do tema ‘medo da morte’ na obra de Liev Tolstoi (destacando a famosa novela “A Morte de Ivan Ilitch“) e de como suas idéias ajudaram a moldar o que chamamos hoje de tanatologia.

Tolstoy “anticipat[es] freely and indirectly the revelations of the medical analyst”, Napier wrote. Ilych evolves though stages of denial, anger, bargaining and depression before arriving eventually at a tragically short-lived state of acceptance: “Well, then, let there be pain”, Ilych thinks to himself before finding that his fear of death has been finally extinguished.
