By José Saramago
«Em A Jangada de Pedra (...) o escritor recorre a um estratagema típico. Uma série de acontecimentos sobrenaturais culmina na separação da Península Ibérica que começa a vogar no Atlântico, inicialmente em direcção aos Açores. A situação criada por Saramago dá-lhe um sem-número de oportunidades para, no seu estilo muito pessoal, tecer comentários sobre as grandezas e pequenezas da vida, ironizar sobre as autoridades e os políticos e, talvez muito especialmente, com os actores dos jogos de poder na alta política. O engenho de Saramago está ao serviço da sabedoria.» (Real Academia Sueca, eight de Outubro de 1998)

Presentation in a particular form is, after all, in itself a sign language; punctuation in a written text and use of particular vocabulary, conventional metaphor and allusion can indicate appropriate rhythm stresses and patterns of phrasing. Presentation can act as a symbol of a particular cultural tradition and indicates as well as stimulates particular expectations about it. Transformations may well have been effected in an oral text when it was written down and the audience for the spoken and the written versions may well have been different.
The Annals of St Bertin, for example, recount how Louis the Pious dispatched messengers to every part of his realm to bring the people the news of his own liberation, to remind them to fulfil the obligations of loyalty which they had promised him and to reassure them that he had forgiven them. Thus written messages, or messages committed to memory, were recited aloud to the people. Further, an assembly in 8 3 5, convened to discuss the problem of Ebbo of Rheims and discussed by Nelson below,13 again demonstrates the interdependence of oral and written modes of communication and discourse.
If laws are an ambiguous, if crucial, category of evidence, the formularies for charters and the extant charters themselves provide an indication of the special importance attached to the written word and its correct application, quite apart from what they reveal about the structure and affiliations of many early medieval communities. For the day-to-day recourse to legal procedures and documentary methods of proof, particularly in relation to land ownership, many charters survive, both in originals produced in relation to the actual transactions, and in later copies made of such originals.
