Description
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.
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.
