Death and the Author

This chapter discusses the visitation of Andrew Morland to Lawrence during his treatment. Although Lawrence's condition failed to improve during his second stay in Bandol, he managed to maintain a relatively active social life. Andrew Morland visited Lawrence and told Lawrence that if he wanted to get better he had to do absolutely nothing, make no attempts at exercise and that he should do no work, see no people, and not even think. He insisted that, in the final stages of tuberculosis, there was no ‘drug equal to heroin’. Lawrence liked Morland and got on well with him but that did not mean his hostility to sanatoria was still not very strong, and it is highly unlikely he would have agreed to go into one without considerable pressure.
