The protagonist of The Memorandum (1965) is not a particular individual but ptydepe, an omnipresent – yet elusive, incomprehensible and unmanageable – artificial language. Václav Havel demonstrates language’s immense power over mankind. Over our thoughts, actions and attitudes. But above all, he shows how easy it is to become part of such an artificial and ultimately nonsensical and aimless system in which we can in the end lose ourselves.
