Great photo. He was dying of, some believe, TB at the time.... Other great writers of roughly same period killed untimely by TB: Chekhov, Kafka, D H Lawrence.Under the wide and starry sky,Dig the grave and let me lie.Glad did I live and gladly die,And I laid me down with a will.This be the verse you grave for me:Here he lies where he longed to be;Home is the sailor, home from sea,And the hunter home from the hill.
Bukowski had it, too, but it didn't kill him.
