Douay-Rheims Bible Online has hosted a new e-book about Maria Valtorta’s The Poem of the Man-God which has an entire section on the SSPX position on the Poem.
I looked at it and found that it actually is very solid. Its description says:
A comprehensive and well-researched guide to everything a traditional Catholic needs to know about Maria Valtorta’s The Poem of the Man-God: its importance, its history, its ecclesiastical status, its status with the SSPX, the claims of proofs of its divine origin, and its critics and defenses
The e-book can be downloaded here:
A video trailer which describes it is here:
To give you a taste of its level of depth and scholarship: it has 902 references/endnotes.
Here are some notable chapters in the e-book which you may want to check out:

Proof by Geography and Topography and Archaeology (Such as Her Mentioning in the Poem Over 350 Geographic Locations in the Holy Land, Including Nine Towns/Villages Not Discovered Archaeologically Until After Her Death, and at Least 62 Places Which Were Either Unknown at the Time of Her Writing or Known Only by a Few Specialized Archaeologists)
Proof by Astronomy (Such as Detailed Astronomic Observations in Her 1940’s Visions that a Purdue University Professor of Theoretical Physics Testified Are Perfectly Consistent with Her Dating System and that She Could Not Have Predicted or Verified Without a Computer)
Proof by its Knowledge, Depth, and Eminence in the Theological, Exegetical, Mystical, and Mariological Fields (Which Many World-Renowned Trustworthy Theologians Say Exceed Anything They Have Ever Read)
Letter from a Spiritual Daughter of Padre Pio’s Telling About His Verbal Command to Read Maria Valtorta’s Works
Interestingly, it gives evidence that modernists have been opposed to this work from the beginning, particularly in the chapter entitled “About the Anonymous Letter in the L’Osservatore Romano and a Thorough Analysis and Refutation of This Letter”.
