Emmanuelle Ducros: A British controversy this morning. With a notable accused, William Shakespeare, whom researchers are trying to knock off his pedestal.

The affair is raising eyebrows across the Channel. What is most annoying is that public money was invested in this study, a lot of public money, donated by a taxpayer-funded Arts and Humanities Research Council. The worst part is that it's meant to be a deconstruction... when it has become incredibly banal and conformist. A lot of noise for nothing.
