Star Wars as Told by William ShakespeareJuly 10th, 2013
This whimsical book, Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope tells the story of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope told in the style of the famous Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare. Described by Firebox as “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.”
