The Dolmen Press: A Celebration


The Dolmen Press, which operated under the guiding hand of Liam Miller from 1951 to 1987, was a beacon in a dark time for Irish publishing and occupies a central position in the story of Irish poetry after Yeats. This collection of essays, edited by the scholar and poet Maurice Harmon, is a testament to the achievement of Dolmen from the hands of the people who were closest to the Press.

Essays by Rory Brennan, Terence Browne, Liam Browne, John Calder Raymond, Nuala Gunn, Maurice Harmon, Jarlath Hayes, John V. Kelleher, Thomas Kinsella, Louis le Brocquy, John Montague, Thomas Dillon Redshaw, Bernard Share, plus interviews with Liam Miller by Kevin Casey and Andy O’Mahony

MAURICE HARMON, is Emeritus Professor of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama at University College Dublin.
