[automatically translated] In the novel, the survey criticized, a poetics aimed at stupor leads the Loredano. Meanwhile, in the Baroque style which favors appearances fake, it sought an illusionistic effect that, even within a narrative text, bring the reader to perceive a sensory theater scene, ultimately host tragic events. They are also boldly exploited the resources of hybridization: it occurs as an abrupt transition from the comic tone to that tragic. And, moreover, the use of the tragic code proceeds in the catalog sign, being explored in fact the whole range of possibilities (from the slope bleaker and cruel to the sublime ultimate gesture, the silent consciousness vortices).
