Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan illustrations—William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.
Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.
Technical issues and typos aside
I want to get my friends together so we can read it as a group. It'd be riotously funny as we are all a bunch of hams.
Could be good in schools
I think this could really be good to use in schools. Show kids how shakespear can be interesting if they think its boring.
Alas! Tis True! The book is flat and the words runneth over the edge!
Thus ends this author's poor attempt at re-imagining the Star War's saga in a screenplay in the Queen's English! Forthwith and forsooth shall the author not hear again the fair clink and ring of coin in his purse unless the present conundrum is dealt with expediently.
