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

(B) Like Edvard Grieg, who the Scandinavians long refused to recognize,
(C) Just as Edvard Grieg was long refused recognition by the Scandinavians,
(D) Just as the Scandinavians long refused to recognize Edvard Grieg, so
(E) Like the Scandinaviansâ€™ long refusal to recognize Edvard Grieg,

go with E. E is the most parallel.

(A) Like Edvard Grieg, whom the Scandinavians long refused to recognize,
compare E.G. with Italiansâ€™ disregard, wrong!
(B) Like Edvard Grieg, who the Scandinavians long refused to recognize,
compare E.G. with Italiansâ€™ 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 Scandinaviansâ€™ long refusal to recognize Edvard Grieg,
compare Scandinaviansâ€™ long refusal with Italians' disregard

I will go with 'E' - possesive form compared to another possesive form

"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"....
