Some books are just so fun we like to give them away…
Aboard the rebel ship.
Trooper 1: The Death Star we could not find herin,
Nor are they on the main computer, Lord.
In short, they are not here, and there’s an end.
Darth Vader: Thou speakest well, my stormtrooper, and yet
Not well upon my ear the message falls.
I turn to thee, thou rebel. Aye, I lift
Thy head above my own…
Yes, you’ve guessed it, it is Star Wars as told by the Bard himself.
Re-imagined 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 fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying…pretty much everything.
For Star Wars fans, for lovers of Shakespeare and for anyone struggling with a way to make iambic pentameter fun!
