This chapter, “Afterword: Anthony Burgess’s D.H. Lawrence Suite”, provides details of the tribute paid by this writer-composer to one of his favourite artists: a setting of four Lawrence poems as the song cycle titled Man Who Has Come Through (1985), which has gone largely unnoticed within Lawrence studies. A list, by no means exhaustive, of musical settings of Lawrence’s work by other composers follows in the Appendix.
