    I want to say that’s Dickens right behind Shakespeare. And is the gruff looking older gentleman, right to the left of the scared victim, Mark Twain?

    Joseph Conrad is to the left of Shakespeare (to the right of Douglass. To the left of Douglass is Francis Bacon.
    That may or may not be Hemingway on the far right. Might be one of the Russians.
