You may be familiar with Mark Twain's critical takedown of James Fennimore Cooper's work, it is well worth reading, although on the point of "using the wrong word" the same can be said about Twain. The English language changes rapidly enough that what Cooper thought was the correct word sounded odd to Twain, and now a hundred years on, the same can be said about Twain. But other than that his criticism is well aimed.
I recently read Twain's takedown of Shelley's biographer Edward Dowdin entitled In Defence of Harriet Shelley. Twain, being a plain spoken midwesterner cuts right to the chase and calls out Dowdin's denial of the facts of Harriet Shelley's life and Dowdin's inability to point out just what a bad person Shelley was. He was a walking, talking horrorshow of a human being. Nothing he did in life was defensible. That he died young, either on purpose or in an accident is actually a saving grace - he was no longer able to abuse others with his charm and wit.
While Twain's account of Shelley's life is not linear enough for me to follow I did read the Wikipedia page about Shelley. That cleared up some of the timeline for me and helped me with the names of the players involved. What a slagheap of humanity. Blighters, one and all.
Here is the poem - for all of his moral failings the boy did have a way with words. I turned on the CC so I could understand it - Bryan "Comrade" Cranston does not enunciate well:
I think that poem applies to Shelley's life, to Obama, and countless others. But that's just my opinion.
