A celebration of our achievements at the end of the 20th century, or a rallying cry for the next? An anthem to mark the end of an age, or a hymn for the future? The first two sections of Ben Okri's secular poem for the millennium appeared in "The Times" in January 1999. Now for the first time the full text of this extraordinarily tender and inspiring work is available.
