This is a note to all mimickers of the “classical” style of literature:
while you were asleep–studying various flavors of fun and fancy hieroglyphs, here’s what you missed: the world has changed.
now, as opposed to then, nearly everyone is literate enough to carry on endlessly–often about nothing. the Enlightenment–among other things–broke the silly, highfalutin nobles’ self-righteous stranglehold on writing. now, nearly everyone can do it.
and now that literature is actually competitive so to it cannever again be effective–that clumsy, long-winded, self-important style–popularized by, for example, those whom Plutarch called the Noble Greeks and Romans as well as whom Hitler called the Master Race.
now, you cannot use a lot to say a little, if you intend to communicate; and you certainly cannot use a structure so haphazard that it cries, “You must follow me!…for I have put words on paper (or on a screen).”
now, you need to be concise, to give understandable context and to provide follow-able structure for what you intend communicate–otherwise you will not “communicate” (aka share with others) sino you will only be a stubborn, self-important relic who nearly no one hears…because they are all too busy–too busy likewise being literate, stubborn, self-important relics who, likewise, no one hears.
