Another masterful mashup of the Bard and ‘Star Wars’
William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return
By Ian Doescher
Hardcover, 168 pages $14.95 / $8.52 Kindle edition (Quirk Books)
Continuing the ultimate literary arc of geek-speak high homage, this third installment of author Ian Doescher’s parody of the entire Star Wars movie canon, re-told in the florid iambic pentameter “signature” of William Shakespeare, continues the interstellar adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and other familiar characters from “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”—all to a masterful mashup of English lit and pop culture that’s hilarious, dramatic and downright mesmerizing.
