    Is this sentence correct?

    Wretched and piteous as he is, he admits his faults.

    it is correct. even if he is deserving of pity, he does not take advantage of that soliciting sympathy. he admits he is wrong whenever he is. (Sounds like a disciplined guy to me.)

    What do you suppose isedehi meant when he replied, "it is correct"?

    Thanks Raymott. I know everyone here is kinda anonymous, but it feels so strange to be refered to as "he".

    I know. It's a problem with English that it doesn't have a neutral pronoun for people.
