About Disappointed Reader

“Our geologists, ichthyologists, zoologists and so on, are fearfully uneducated people. They write such a vile jargon that it not only bores one to read it, but one actually has at times to remodel the sentences before one can understand them; on the other hand, they have solemnity and earnestness enough and to spare. It’s really beastly. . . .” 
Letter of Anton Chekhov to A. S. Suvorin (Moscow, February 28, 1890)
