Summary

These stories serve as an introduction to Nicholas Hagger’s five volumes totalling 1,001 stories (an echo of The Thousand and One Nights, or Arabian Nights). They are grouped in two parts which reflect the two aspects of the fundamental theme of world literature outlined in his A New Philosophy of Literature: ‘Follies and Vices’ and ‘Quest for the One’. These stories condemn follies and vices in relation to an implied virtue – more than 150 vices are listed in a Preface – and present moments of heightened consciousness in which the universe is perceived as a unity.

Author Biography

Nicholas Hagger is a poet, man of letters, cultural historian and philosopher. He has lectured in English Literature at universities in Baghdad, Tripoli (Libya) and Japan (where he was a Professor), and is the author of more than 35 books. These include a substantial literary output of nearly 1,500 poems, over 300 classical odes, two poetic epics, five verse plays and a thousand stories, travelogues and innovatory works in literature, history and philosophy.
