The Concept of the Best Society

Uploaded by :

This 5 page paper discusses the concept of the Best Society in terms of the model constructed by Tolstoy in The Death of Ivan Ilych and by Ibsen in A Doll's House. The concept is further defined by Homer's Odyssey. The writer explores the hierarchical and social constructs and roles in terms of those characters who reside outside the Best Society, and argues that the authors see their societies as superior to the Other.
