As Rothenberg states in his preface, the title is based on a Jewish mystical work, Sifra diSeniuta from which he drew the lines that open this title. Those lines appear sporadically throughout Concealments, not as the mapping of a nonexistent god, but as an intimation, in both Concealments and Caprichos, of an imagined world embedded in the real one.
