The Great Wednesday Compare #3- A.A. Milne VERSUS Robertson Davies


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (A.A. Milne Vs. Jules Verne) for the 5th week in a row, with a final score of 5-2, was A.A. Milne.

Though I was pleasantly surprised with Around The World In 80 Days, I'm not going to dwell on Verne's loss last week.

As those of you who've followed these Compares may remember, winning five weeks in a row triggers the end of this edition of The Great Wednesday Compare. John Steinbeck won the first edition, Robertson Davies won the second, and when they faced off against one another, Davies became the ultimate champion. This week, Davies is back.

And now, for no reason at all, here's another video by those adorable and talented PS22 Kids:

I must leave Milne and go back with the man who needs a shave.

Sometimes I wonder if that is the only publicity photo ever taken of Davies.

Davies all the way baby!

Davies all the way! One of my favourite authors of all times. I went into mourning the week that I heard he had died :-(

Difficult choice again, because I do love Milne, but I've been re-reading Davies recently and I guess he deserves to win, he's a wonderful writer.

Davies!

I wish I had read Fifth Business last year after I picked it up so that I could vote with an opinion.
Alas, I will go with the Tao of Pooh, and vote for Milne.

(but maybe after I read a Davies novel I'll come back and regret my vote. That's how much these compares are affecting my daily life, John)

Nobody can top Davies!

Any school kids who can sing Bjork will convince me to switch my allegiance to Davies! Although I would have anyway.

This is a tough one. But I think I have to go for my fellow Canadian and say Davies

Robbie Davies... Can't fight the patriotic instinct in this contest.
