Example text

In the ‘frighteningly festive forms’ of the drama, which is ‘like a heresy trial’ [wie eines Ketzergerichtes], God and humankind ‘express themselves in the all-forgetting form of infidelity’ [in der allvergessenden Form der Untreue sich mitteilt]. They do so in order that ‘the memory of the Heavenly ones [der Himmlischen] not fade’, for ‘divine infidelity is the best to retain’ [göttliche Untreue ist am besten zu behalten].

Tu feras l’arche en cellules et tu la couvriras de kapper, d’une couverture isolante, au-dedans et au-dehors’ (Lindon, p. 23). The King James version of the verse is ‘Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall thou make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch’. In a note on the word kapper at the conclusion of his translation, Lindon remarks Let us remember that kapper, which gives its name to the ark of the Covenant and to the day of Kippur, was, first, the pitch that covered-and-isolated the dove in the ark of Noah, and that it is represented here [in Jonah, 4] by the sap that covers-and-isolates Jonah under the qîq~yôn plant.
