Daily Dose

From Cakes and Ale, by William Somerset Maugham


"He was for long thought to write very bad English, and indeed he gave you the impression of writing with the stub of a blunt pencil; his style was laboured, and uneasy mixture of the classical and the slangy, and his dialogue was such as could never have issued from the mouth of a human being."

From Chapter XI
