The first volume, named Poems was published in 1873. Nicolae Manolescu stated that « Hasdeu is a remarkable poet », « through his attempt to create templates for stanzas, to vary the rhythm or to entirely remove the rhyme».
The New Revue hosted the poetic creation of B.P. Hasdeu: Mater Dolorosa, the pastel From Winter, the anti-bourgeois satire Multiplicamini (in which he satirized the last for money), the ballad Stefan and Radul, Cerebratiunea.
After the loss of his daughter, B.P. Hasdeu created heartbreaking elegies: Waiting, At the Madhouse, Gaudeamus, Table d’ hôte, God.
Sarcasm and Ideal, his last book, published in 1897, included, as the scholar said, „the last nine years of literature ”: poems, prose, the dramatic sketch The Woman, the four „zacherline”, literary criticism, the conferences We and You and We in 1892, the obituary dedicated to Eminescu, articles on spiritualist meditations. Almost all the content of the book was first published in the New Revue.
