Lang published his six volume edition in 1959-1960. These new volumes include a selection of several hundred other letters addressed to Swinburne. In addition to the full texts of the letters and full annotations, the edition includes an appendix updating Langs earlier work, identifying where holographs then missing are now housed and identifying correspondents then unknown.

Swinburne set out to challenge the proprieties of his Victorian contemporaries in every way, from the explicit sexuality of his early poetry to his political radicalism and his enthusiasms for such then uncanonical writers as Blake, Shelley and the Elizabethan dramatists surrounding Shakespeare. This collection provides new details of virtually all his literary undertakings as well as providing further biographical information. Letters to his cousin, Mary Gordon Leith, appear often written in a transparent code that intensifies the curiously erotic, even flagellatory relationship that appears to have existed between the two.
