For whom the bell tolls

A quienes echan a doblar las campanas anunciando el fin de la novela, cabría pedirles que reflexionen sobre aquel verso del poeta John Donne: ¿no estarán doblando las campanas sobre su capacidad de novelar?

Those who toll the bell to announce the end of the novel should be asked to reflect on that verse by the poet John Donne: Aren't they tolling the bell on their own ability to write novels?
