‘Style will have propriety, if it be made to express feeling (the various emotions) and character, and be proportionate to the subjectmatter’. The perverse transition from the feminine to the abstract neuter ἀνάλογον (sc. πρᾶγμα, as in triste lupus stabulis et sim.) is characteristic of Aristotle's carelessness in writing. Perhaps, however, it may be used adverbially as in c. 6 § 7 (see note).
