This paper compares three books "The Death of Ivan Ilyich" by Leo Tolstoy, "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom and "The Trial and Death of Socrates" by Plato. It explores the similarities and difference that the themes that these books raise.
From the Paper:"All three books centrally raise the same issues that of death, life, social values and ethics. It is interesting to note how little the man's ideas about these things have changed from 401 BC to present century. These books are a natural insight into the fact that human society is born with some central idea. The books should be used for education to show the development of civilizations and how some ideas are centrally basic to the human race irrespective of the time frame."
