You do NOT re-write William Shakespeare!

Whine at the Independent after their Booker Prize-winning columnist Howard Jacobson said he was going to rewrite The Merchant of Venice to take out the “anti-Semitism”

Sirs,

I don’t care if Mr Jacobson has won some award or other for his writing, you do NOT re-write William Shakespeare!

It is intellectual vandalism and arrogance at the level of wanting to wallpaper the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
