The second half of my introduction to Qoheleth pastes a ‘readymade’ gambler’s bond by Marcel Duchamp alongside the book’s opening chapter. The French dandy’s mock self-portrait highlights the complexities of the biblical Assembler’s name/title, his mischievous ploys in the game of wisdom, the metaphoric significance of the word hebel , and the spinning sensation rendered in reading the text. Constructing a readymade of Qoheleth as Duchamp, I play roulette with the first chapter, following its disconcerting poetics through to the next and retouching the Catalogue of Times with a comic cadence.
