Like Edvard Grieg, whom the Scandinavians long refused to recognize, the Italians’ disregard for Verdi persisted for a decade after his critical acclaim in France and Austria.

go with E. E is the most parallel.

(A) Like Edvard Grieg, whom the Scandinavians long refused to recognize,
compare E.G. with Italians’ disregard, wrong!
(B) Like Edvard Grieg, who the Scandinavians long refused to recognize,
compare E.G. with Italians’ disregard, wrong!
(C) Just as Edvard Grieg was long refused recognition by the Scandinavians,
'refused recognition' wrong!
(D) Just as the Scandinavians long refused to recognize Edvard Grieg, so
the presence of 'so' is ungrammartically.
(E) Like the Scandinavians’ long refusal to recognize Edvard Grieg,
compare Scandinavians’ long refusal with Italians' disregard

"E"....correct comparison...use of Like to introduce a phrase.

E because of the correct comparison...however, I think "like" is used to compare nouns, while "such as" is used to compare verbs.

I think E is the best, but the absolute correct way to write the sentence should have used "such as"....
