John Outram's prose style is so opaque that it took me two very close readings of his epic letter (AJ 17.4.03) to get any sense of what he was talking about. The text was so intensely decorative and so heavily embellished with obscure references that the form of his argument was almost completely lost.
Over-embellished? Obscure references? Hmm. What does that remind me of?
