Here is my best explanation:

'chaos' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'man cradling daughter born to bring about' is the wordplay.
'man' becomes 'male' ().
'cradling' indicates putting letters inside.
'daughter' becomes 'd'.
'born' becomes 'b'.
'to bring about' shows that the letters should be reversed in order (I've seen 'brought about' mean this).
'male' placed around 'd' is 'malde'.
'malde'+'b'='maldeb'
'maldeb' reversed gives 'BEDLAM'.

'such' acts as a link.
