Part I contains an essay on Swedenborg and Baudelaire, an essay on Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire and Mallarn, a third on the imposing but frequently miscalculated effects of Baudelaires discovery of Poe and a fourth on Whitman and the Symbolists.

Part II is concerned with prosody, and contains four essays entitled From poetic prose to the prose-poem- the development of the vers lib r- the first theory of vers libre- Whitman and the origins of the vers libre. With these eight essays are reprinted the vivid accounts of personal interviews which the author had as a young man more than thirty years before publication - when he first began to investigate the problems discussed in these essays - with the post-Symbolist poets.
