William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher
Author Ian Doescher does it again, blending the infamous Bard’s style with the engrossing story of Star Wars with “William Shakespeare’s The
Empire Striketh Back”! Here is the synopsis:
Hot on the heels of the New York Times best seller William Shakespeare’s Star Wars comes the next two installments of the original trilogy:
William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return. Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away
as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and
impeccable iambic pentameter. Illustrated with beautiful black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork, these two plays offer essential reading for
all ages. Something Wookiee this way comes!
Star Wars fans all know the story by now. While the plot is the same, the words that are spoken make this an incredibly fresh story that I couldn’t
put down. My love of both Star Wars and Shakespeare made this a phenomenal read that was addicting to read, and makes me want to read the entire
series this way. If you love Star Wars and Shakespeare, this is the series for you, and Ian Doescher is a fantastic author who has brilliantly
brought this series to life once more, so be sure to pick up this book today!
