This work includes the first collection of poems by Rafael Montesinos to be translated into English, with hopes of making the works of one of the most notable twentieth century Spanish poets of post-civil-war Spain more well-known. His collection of free verse poems, including "El Ultimo Cuerpo de Campanas" ("The Last Toll of the Bells"), reflects the poet's deep concern with existentialist themes as reflected in poems steeped in nostalgia, childhood, love, friendship, and his birthplace, Seville.
