Sarah has persuaded me to submit an entry for the The normblog Posterity Collection poll. It is:
1. Poet - Chaucer
2. Playwright - Shakespeare
3. Novelist - E.M. Forster
4. Composer - Beethoven, Bruckner, Mozart, Schubert
5. Jazz musician - Milt Jackson
6. Rock or pop star/group - ABBA
7. Country music ditto
8. Movie director - Michael Powell
9. Painter - Vermeer
11. Sculptor - Richard Serra
E.M. Forster - really? Strange what this exercise makes you discover about yourself ...
(Actually, I'm distracted by the fact there is no Unicode character for the backwards B in ABBA).
