Robert William Rogers never makes a positive statement if a double negative will do and rarely makes a negative statement if there is a possible triple negative available. Days are 'periods of twentyfour hours' and archaic words struggle for a place amongst some other terms such as 'chiefest' which are timeless atrocities. Some sentences have a sort of charm, but most (e.g. 'Into these years probably went some of the building operations which have already been described') are just painful.
I suspect that this prose style is quite deliberate, perhaps an homage of sorts to the writers of the King James Bible. The 17th century scholars who wrote the King James Bible were struggling to translate from Greek, Latin and Hebrew without losing any of the nuances of these languages. There is no such excuse for Mr Rogers.
I say Mr Rogers, but I truly hope that I have used the wrong title.Read more ›
