It does not only use static documents (photographs, engravings), but also, for instance, cartoons’ (Bazin, 1998: 37, my translation).

Adorno, 1991: 13, 14) The focus on interaction highlights what is dialogical in an essay. Bakhtin’s use of concepts such as heteroglossia and dialogism is firmly based on the idea of dif ference and communicative exchange. Meaning is not fixed, but responds to a process of multiple interactions at dif ferent levels: between utterances, between speakers and addressees, between dif ferent discourses. Following Bakhtin, the very emergence of an utterance confirms its connection to other utterances, and it is such connection which forms the very basis of language and cultural work.
Often, and following Montaigne himself, the formula of the self-portrait has been used. As we have already seen, Montaigne wrote the Essays with his friends and kinsfolk in mind, ‘to the end, that losing me […], they may therein find some lineaments of my conditions and humours’ (Montaigne, 1952: 1). The Essays would then work as a self-portrait inasmuch as an image of what Montaigne terms his ‘judgement’ is preserved in textual form. Montaigne himself remarks at dif ferent points in the Essays that he is not writing a book about himself, but rather creating an incarnation of himself in the book.
