Star Wars Saga Reimagined as William Shakespeare Play Complete with Elizabethan Iambic Pentameter

The force is with this eBook: William Shakespeare Star Wars. Iambic Pentameter? Check. Elizabethan inspired drawings? Check. Kindle Version? Check. Unfortunately, this book does not double as a light saber, but I know where to get one.

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.

This is pretty much the most awesome piece of news the internet has given me all week, and I’m sure my Fourth of July should be put on hold so I can read this book. After I’m done, I’ll be seeking out creative reviews of the book like this one from Daniel Wallace of the New York Times:

“Well-read geeks have breathlessly waited
For what Ian Doescher hath created
This book’s cover is the door
To a Star Wars ne’er seen before”
