Death and the Author

David Ellis

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the death and funeral of Lawrence. The rapidity with which Lawrence was buried meant that there was no opportunity for members of his family, or for his friends from England, to attend the funeral. This particularly distressed his younger sister Ada, who had nursed her brother through several serious illnesses, lent him money during the war, and was the family member best equipped, through educational training and intelligence, to understand and follow his literary career. But some of Lawrence's friends came to attend the funeral especially Jessie Chambers. After his death Frieda brought back involuntary memories on him and looked forward with optimism to the future.

Keywords:   D. H. Lawrence, Frieda, Ada, death, funeral, burial, Jessie Chambers
