Are you a fan of Star Wars, yet also enjoy the works of William Shakespeare? If so, the William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return book might be the perfect combination for you. Essentially, Ian Drescher penned the tale of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in the same manor and style of William Shakespeare. It is as if the great writer and poet himself decided to create the works of Star Wars in his own specific style.
For anyone curious, the original William Shakespeare's Star Wars and The Empire Striketh Back are both available, so for someone who is just learning about the William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return, picking up all three is a good way to start. Naturally, this book is only going to be truly for those individuals who enjoy both Star Wars and Shakespeare, but for those who do, it truly is a match made in heaven. The first edition hardcover is 168 pages, yet is smaller than a traditional hardcover release, as it is just 5.6 inches by 8.3 inches in size.
The author who created the mashup, Ian Drescher, is not an English major, but someone who loves both Star Wars and Shakespeare. However, this does not mean he is without a finer education to help him pen the work. He holds a B.A. in Music from Yale University, as well as a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School and a Ph.D. in Ethics from Union Theological Seminary.
