Enormous Achievement

October 18, 1992

Peter Rainer writes, in his review of "The Complete Essays" (Aug. 16) of "the enormity of Montaigne's achievement."

Surely he means the vastness of those achievements, and not that they were, as my dictionary says, outrageous or atrocious.

Mr. Rainer may argue "common usage," but isn't it better to be exacting?
