What’s on your bedside reading table at the moment? Hmm? Two books, among others, are on mine. Let’s laugh and cry a little between the realities they each present. Oh yes, they both deal with the very real quest for freedom of the mind–the body, and the heart and soul of humankind. Which books free your mind?
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, Verily, A New Hope by Ian Doescher
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.IAN DOESCHER has loved Shakespeare since eighth grade and was born 45 days after Star Wars Episode IV was released. He has a B.A. in Music from Yale University, a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School, and a Ph.D. in Ethics from Union Theological Seminary. Ian lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and two sons. This is his first book.
Hell, yes, it’s a lot of fun!
Star Wars is about oppressed people fighting ?????? Come on….
What’s Shakespeare got to do with banned books in Arizona? Hmmm….oh yeah, the oppressed…rebels, intellectual freedom etc.
