"I was aware of a number of [Liam Miller, editor of Dolmen Press]'s early books as they passed through the stages of publication. I was aware of a proposed book by Seamus Heaney. Miller was glad to add this to the body of new Irish poetry gathering around the press. I was enthusiastic, even without seeing the full contents. I had seen some of Heaney’s early poems and knew he was important. A strong image out of Bogland described what I myself had seen in the dark hall of the Natural History Museum: 'They’ve taken the skeleton / Of the Great Irish Elk / Out of the peat, and set it up, / An astounding crate full of air.'" Thomas Kinsella Irish Times
