For fans of Star Wars and/or theater alike, The Force Doth Awaken is a delightful addition to the Shakespeare’s Star Wars saga! Doescher’s dedication and love of theater shines through every scene, from playful references to BB-8’s own iambic verse. I loved this book so much I can hardly wait for the next one.
Experience The Force Awakens as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, Shakespearian monologues, and theatrical stage directions As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Damaron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama--in iambic pentameter Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout. Chewbacca speaks Leader Snoke gives a soliloquy And the romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa takes a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of. All with woodcut-style illustrations that place Star Wars characters into an Elizabethan galaxy. The story may take place in a galaxy far, far away, but you'll be convinced it was written by the Bard.
