Abstract

THE LOOMING MASS OF BLACK COMBE, and the skyline of the central fells that he can see from his windowScafell, Scafell Pike, Great End, Harter Fell, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, Coniston Old Manare among the great shaping influences in the work of Norman Nicholson. The fells, the rocks that make the fells, the becks and the rivers that flow down the fells all speak to him and through him. The other great influence on his writing is his religious belief. As he himself said recently in a radio broadcast The universe is not just a huge mechanical coffeegrinder, ticking over and over without aim or purpose. It works to a pattern it works to a plan. And part of the sheer enjoyment of being among mountains comes from our sometimes feeling swept up in the plan, where every end is a new beginning and every death a new birth.
