Inspired by one of the greatest creative minds in the English language—and William Shakespeare—here is an officially licensed 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.
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.
In order to review as many books as possible without stressing myself out, I’m going to be super mini- tweet style reviews to balance my usual review style. I love reviewing books, but sometimes writing a long review is daunting, and then I end up not reviewing the many, many books I’ve read. All my Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less. Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
