Mackay Brown’s imagination is heraldic and formal; it is stirred by legends of Viking warrior and Christian saint; it solemnises the necessary labour of life into a seasonal liturgy; it consecrates the visible survivals of history, and ruins of time, into altars that are decked with the writings themselves.

Seamus Heaney, ‘Celtic Fringe, Viking Fringe’, The Listener, vol. 82 (1969), p. 254
