Style Weakness in Articles by Critics of English Lit.

It's interesting to find stylistic weakness in critics of English literature. It's certainly not uncommon, and critics are not necessarily immaculate writers, but it nevertheless surprises me to find such weaknesses in articles by celebrated critics. The one I'm currently reading is J. Hillis Miller's critical article on Charles Dickens's Bleak House, in which he opens three out of six consecutive paragraphs with "But".
