Collected Poems

A transformational mystical journey (through awakening, a Dark Night and purgation to illumination and a vision of the oneness of Nature and the universe) that reflects the Age: Communism, Europe and the American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Since the Second World War English poetry has become almost exclusively social and secular. It has lost contact with poetry's true task - ancient, traditional and perennial - of mirroring the contemplative, metaphysical vision of Reality or God. Here is a new, distinctive and original metaphysical voice. Nicholas Hagger descends through the Dark Night to his centre, experiences illumination and ascends to a unitive vision of the One that so attracted poets like Dante and Eliot, Blake and Yeats. While doing so, he reflects the Age, focusing prophetically on the end of Communism, the decline of Europe, the heart of America and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Grounded both in the present day, and in history and philosophy, Collected Poems is a signpost to the life of the future, and essential reading for both poets and anyone with soul.
