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. Through this collection of poetry the poet defines himself as existentialist and a master of capturing subtle bittersweet irony.
