* He treads like a conqueror! And well he may.*
'well' comes before 'he' in the above sentence.
I think it's a inversion. but I don't understand the word order.
because I think that verb or modal verb comes before subject in a inversion.
Could you expalin the word order of 'well he may'?
Thanks in advance.
You have to consider the source. That quote sounds like something Shakespeare wrote. In that case, it is appropriately written.
