In his existentialism is a humanism, sartre discusses abandonment and the many ways that individuals attempt to cover over existential abandonment.

There are two parts to this Discussion Board assignment.
Part 1:
In Chapter 6 of Tolstoy’s the Death of Ivan Ilyich, Ivan confronts the reality of his looming death. Tolstoy describes the many ways that Ivan attempts to deny or cover over this reality. At the end of the story, Ivan seems to come to terms with his death and achieves insight, enlightenment, or resolution about the meaning of his life. In his Existentialism is a Humanism, Sartre discusses abandonment and the many ways that individuals attempt to cover over existential abandonment.
For this part of the assignment, provide an insightful comparison between Ivan’s confrontation with his death and Sartre’s concept of abandonment.
Some questions to consider: How are Ivan’s attempts to cover over his death similar to the ways that Sarte discusses individuals deny abandonment? What similarities exist between Ivan’s acceptance and confrontation with his death and an awareness of existential abandonment? (These are only some questions or topics to consider for your comparison of the texts.)
