"In het werk dat zoveel weerstand heeft opgeroepen verwerpt Van Sw. het polijsten van verzen en de onderworpenheid aan regels, principes (...). Daartegenover stelt hij inspiratie en extase. Zijn overtuiging wordt gemotiveerd door de hermetische filosofie op naam van Hermes Trismegistos, waarin lijdzame overgave en extatische terugkeer naar de goddelijke harmonie kernthema's zijn. Het unieke satirisch-hermetische werk van Van Swaanenburg dient men te beschouwen tegen de 18de-eeuwse achtergrond van deze filosofie" (Moderne Encycl. van de Wereldliteratuur IX, p.198).
