Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. In classical rabbinic literature the unprounceable name of God produces and sacralizes a host of synyms around what can't be said. RESIDUAL SYNONYMS FOR THE NAME OF GOD performs the proliferation of language and culture in our late capitalist moment as a residual structure of a religious past. Lewis Freedman has heretically rewritten the work of his ancestors to create an antated index of this inherited structure, in which our contemporary drive for total finitude profanes the infinite primarily by being indistinguishable from it.
