Daneri is using the aleph to write a terrible poem that minutely and pointlessly describes everything on earth.
Commonly referred to under the symbol , the Hebrew letter, aleph.
Each short clause begins with aleph; each makes the same fervid resolve.
The first begins with aleph, the second with Beth, and so on, the second verse of each pair not being counted in the scheme.
