His mother and I both were thunderstruck,
In love with our dear child, in love with life,
In love with th'myst'ry of the galaxy
That brought such tender happiness to us.
How could I not love this? The Force Awakens was a special moment for all Star Wars fans, but for me it especially resonated. M...

"Mine entrance is the very knell of death,
Which doth come ringing for mine enemies.
Disciple of the dark side, Kylo Ren,
So am I now and evermore shall be."
Soooo how does one take the tepid "new" Star Wars and attempt to give it some class? Why turn the prose into a mimicry of Shakespeare of course...

A great diversion this weekend, I’m glad I checked the physical book out of the library to go with my audiobook. It was a great way to make my nerdy heart happy today!
R2 and Chewbacca speak, Rathtars sing, and so much more in this newest edition.

I received an ARC of William Shakespeare's the Force Doth Awaken: Star Wars Part the Seventh from Quirk Books for a review on Rogues Portal . You can read an excerpt of that review below, or click this link to read it in full.

I’ll repeat some of what I wrote in my reviews of Doescher’s other books: I’m a massive Star Wars fan; additionally, I love Shakespeare, so a book that combines these two things hits me square in my wheelhouse. This book imagines Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens as a Shakespearean traged...
