FINIS was published shortly after Bejnamin DeCasseres died. His wife Bio wrote a short preface for it:
“In the last months of his life, the twilight time when all action recedes and life becomes luminous in silence, Benjamin DeCasseres wrote these four essays.
Alive with the poetic flavor of his word-mastery, here is illumination of the uttermost self, a book that is at once a breviary of philosophic fearlessness, a hymnal of the eternal verities.
Before his day had completely receded, “One last ecstatic glow that stains a hemisphere”, had arched itself above him and he penned the lines which have become the seal of his life’s work.”
