This chapter discusses dying and D. H. Lawrence's desperate struggle. Whether we acknowledge it or not, most of us fear death. Death remains a great mystery, one of the central issues with which religion and philosophy and science have wrestled since the beginning of human history. On the other hand, Lawrence was dogged by both pulmonary tuberculosis and chronic bronchitis during the last five or six years of his life and had plenty of time to see death coming. His illness gave him the opportunity to develop feelings and attitudes about dying.

Keywords:   D. H. Lawrence, death, dying, religion, philosophy, tuberculosis, bronchitis
