I remember visiting the house of Edmond Rostand at Cambo-les-Bains, where in the garden I found a sort of monument to the great writers of European literature. As I recall, there were just three of them: Dante, Shakespeare and Hugo. I could be wrong - there may have been Homer and Virgil as well, but anyway Victor Hugo was there among them. We ought to be able to do more than this for a great writer in several different forms (but although I know a bit about him and some of his writing, I don't know enough). --Martin Wyatt 19:29, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
