The main means of influencing the recipient of Coelho is anti-rhetoric approach: the deliberate neglect of appropriate techniques and figures, clear nominalism (with the exception of epithets, comparisons, metaphorical emptiness) and ideology of story-telling, which to some extent brings him to journalism, a documentary character. Moreover, a particular influence on the texts of Coelho had Latin-American documental approach, which actively evolved in continental literature from the late 1960s to the literature of evidence. Thus, the story of Veronica is discursively formalized as "evidence" - presented to the "author" retelling of "real" scene in a madhouse (Anbarasi 22).
