William Shakespeare

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.

“Much Ado About Nothing” Is Free eBook Of The Day

Today’s Free eBook of the Day is Much Ado about Nothing by William Shakespeare.

Shakespeare’s classic comedy was just made available through Project Gutenberg last night. Here is an excerpt:
“In our last conflict four of
his five wits went halting off, and now is the whole man govern’d
with one; so that if he have wit enough to keep himself warm, let
him bear it for a difference between himself and his horse; for
it is all the wealth that he hath left to be known a reasonable
creature. Who is his companion now? He hath every month a new
sworn brother.”

Project Gutenberg has the free download.
