Name this acting trick that is a surefire way to ellicit applause from an audience. It is here described by Leigh Hunt in his Dramatic Essays published in 1807.
“It consists of nothing more than in gradually raising the voice as the speech draws to a conclusion, making an alarming outcry on the last four or five lines, or suddenly dropping them into a tremulous but energetic undertone, and with a vigorous jerk of the right arm rushing off the stage. All this astonishes the galleries; they are persuaded it must be something very fine, because it is so important aned so unintelligible, and they clap for the sake of their own reputation.”
