Overview

"It is this collection that has now come to us.... as the first adequate representation in our tongue of a poet who has been compared with Shelley and Keats and Swinburne, Baudelaire and Heine."

-Wm. Aspenwall Bradley for the N. Y. Times [1907]

"A series of short prose dramatic studies.... Of the six subjects treated, four are.... suggestive.... of a contempt for all the restriction which prevent human society from relapsing into barbaric animalism.... The last two pieces, grouped under the single title, "The Butterfly,' are cast in the shape of the old moralities."

-Nation [1907]

"These little plays, cynically catching life at some unnatural angle, as they do, are cleverly, even brilliantly done.

-Richard Le Gallenne.

"Quite, evidently not the result of experience but due to a somewhat decadent outlook upon life."

-Review of Reviews [1907]
