1970 _Kirkus Reviews_
[https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/pierre-schoendoerffer/farewell-to-the-king/]
:  The author unfortunately is given to an excess of tremulous commentary
which transports Learoyd out of belief and reality ("Poor Learoyd, where is
your victory now? King of the wind and rain. . . ").

'Histrionic'?

Not in OED.
