Death and the Author

This chapter discusses Lawrence's treatment in a sanatorium. A sanatorium is a medical facility for long-term illness, most typically associated with treatment of tuberculosis. By denying that he had tuberculosis, or that he was seriously affected by it, Lawrence turned his back on what in his time was thought to be the most effective treatment: an extended stay in a sanatorium. He acknowledged, as life in the sanatorium had taught him to, that he was not like other, healthy people and needed to be kept a close watch on.

Keywords:   D. H. Lawrence, treatment, sanatorium, tuberculosis, denial, terminally ill
