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 Jed 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!

The second one is more serious as the story is more serious. This one is as enjoyable as the other two...
Taking Star Wars movies (the real episodes, now known as 4-6) and writing them in Shakespearean verse just ticks a lot of boxes for me. The Jedi Doth Return, though the third in the series, is the first that I have read (I prefer to read a series in order, but when winning a copy from the publisher...
