Q: Only for his ruin "does" renown come to the fool. (Why is "does" written? Is not it appropriate to delete "does"? I think the correct sentence is two that "Renown come to the fool only for his ruin." or...
A: "renown does come to the fool" is correct. Grammatically, I'm not sure why "does" is in front of "renown". In every day speech, the emphatic mood (do + verb) is usually not split (except by certain common words, eg. "do not + verb" or "do really + verb"). But it's not uncommon for it to be split in things like proverbs, bible quotes, etc. My guess is that it's to place the emphasis on "only for his ruin" rather than on "renown". But I'm not certain.
Q: It's ruins whole magic, I am no longer interested in that. does this sound natural?
