The book, simply titled Poems, shows that Brennan was exploring pressing religious issues of his time. He melded Western esoteric currents such as alchemy and Rosicrucianism with Romantic literature and philosophy and French Symbolist theory. This book argues that the focus of Poems is the notion of a higher self. It is the first major study of Brennans work in this broad religious, philosophical and literary context.

Its argument is supported by evidence from Brennans own library and the holdings of the Sydney library in which he worked.
