Quirk Books publishes Star Wars retold by Shakespeare

Published on

Editor's Pick
From Quirk Books - the publisher that gave you Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sensibility and Sea Monsters - comes the latest clash of cultures old and new: William Shakespeare's Star Wars.  The book was written by Ian Doescher, and retells the movie as presented by Shakespeare. It's the perfect match; George Lucas's magnum opus was surely made for Shakespearean declamation, as this video demonstrates, and Darth Vader is surely a tragic hero on a par with Macbeth, Othello and the rest.
