It is unfortunate, therefore, that Stephen Holmes mars his otherwise helpful Anatomy of Antiliberalism with a few stray animadversions
A clear example of this was in the March issue of Heterodoxy: Articles and Animadversions
on Political Correctness and Other Follies (Heterodoxy, March 1993).
on what poetic man has made of woman placed her in advance of Wordsworth's Preface to Lyrical Ballads as an opponent of the self-conscious "art" of verse in contrast to natural expression.
Prime Minister Gladstone's animadversions

In the opening chapter, "Economy," when he addresses the human need for shelter, Thoreau first considers the idea of a house, moving from the customary glance at the bower of Adam and Eve, to his animadversions

Alas, for all his intellectual ability, Moreiras is a primitive ideologue with numerous animadversions

Burke, in the course of some very severe animadversions
which he made on Lord North for want of due economy in his management of the public purse, introduced the well-known aphorism, Magnum vectigal est parsimonia, but was guilty of a false quantity by saying vectigal.
Temporarily dismissing Browne's imitators, Havenstein then takes on Stanley Fish, not only defending Browne against Fish's animadversions

I have nonetheless some animadversions
concerning the inclusion of some "responses" in Professor Butler's collection and the omission of others.
