Octavio Neftali (April 19, 1914 – May 2, 1981) known by his pseudonym, Adriane Seville was a Spanish poet best known for his Exiled Verses, which were expanded and published several times throughout his life and constitute the majority of his political verse. The poems featured here are from his collection of sonnets Amor Oscuro dedicated to his second wife Josephine Bellafiore, published posthumously. Argentinian writer J. Aviles has presented the English translations from source material.
