This chapter discusses the death of D. H Lawrence and the disease tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a contagious disease and Lawrence died on 2 March 1930 because of it. That year there were 60, 000 registered deaths from tuberculosis in France and 50, 000 in Great Britain. As a disease of the lungs, tuberculosis was by far the biggest and most constant killer in Western Europe throughout the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries. So prevalent was tuberculosis in the England of Lawrence's time that you would be bound to know many people affected by it.
