Nicholas Hagger studied English Literature at Oxford under Christopher Ricks, discussed his first poetic epic with Ezra Pound and received letters from Ted Hughes. Kathleen Raine and David Gascoyne spoke at the launch of his first book of poems, Asa Briggs spoke on his first history book and he led a dozen Universalist philosophers at regular meetings in the early 1990s. He has tried to reflect the Age in his work from seven angles, including literary, philosophical, scientific and historical perspectives, so each of his works interacts with other works he has written.

"Overlord" is the first major poetic epic in the English language since Milton's "Paradise Lost". Written in blank verse, with a panoramic visionary sweep that embraces higher and lower worlds within a universalist scheme, it is a contemporary epic poem in the tradition of Homer's "Iliad" and Virgil's "Aeneid". Drawing, as they do, on a single defining event for civilisation, it focuses on World War II and the American General Eisenhower's pursuit of Hitler and the fall of Berlin (our Troy); the battles and the suffering, and the hidden conflicts between Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill, Eisenhower and Montgomery, and Hitler and his generals. All are handled with a Homeric mastery that moves easily between formal diplomacy and bitter antagonism. Eisenhower's visions of Hell and Heaven evoke Dante's "Divine Comedy". In dealing with these powerful forces, still operating in our own time, "Overlord" makes sense of the 20th century and gives a new understanding of the present - in particular of the alternative New World Orders that face us.
