Evidence

"But nobody knew when they (the poems) were meant to come to an end; therefore the applause always came in the wrong place, either too soon or too late; either the poem came to an end unexpectedly and was received in complete silence because the audience expected it to continue, or else there was deafening applause in the middle, where the reader had merely paused for breath."
