The Death of Ivan Ilych
by Leo Tolstoy
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
There are a few vague references to certain episodes from Ivan's younger days, when he "succumbed to sensuality" (2.4) and did "horrid" things (2.5). He also apparently had an affair with a country girl. No more details though.
