Happy 185th Birthday, Henrik Ibsen!

      • Well, George Bernard Shaw is my favourite writer. Period. He is number one. The other four, in no particular order, are: Henrik Ibsen, Anton Chekhov, Clifford Odets, and Thornton Wilder (but not Our Town). Arthur Miller is up there, too, though. Perhaps I should say top 6, in no particular order. 🙂
