5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespear strikes back, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back (William Shakespeare Trilogy) (William Shakespeare's Star Wars Trilogy) (Hardcover)
The second instalment of Ian Doescher's of Shakespearean Star Wars. I think this volume is even better than the first one. The reason being if any story screemed Mcbeth type of themes of darkness such as curruption of the soul, betrayal it is the Empire Strikes Back.

The play format with asides and soliloquies give great character insights into the characters, even better that the films. I love the Han and Leia are arguing than there is an aside of what they are thinking and reslly want to say to each other. There is more emphasis on Luke falling to the darkside in his soliloquy. There is even an interesting angle of Leia thinking towards the darkside in her soliloquy during the escape from Baspin. I am not sure about chorus but it is supposed to be play so I guess the need to be there somewhere.

Anyone who is a fan of Star Wars and especially the Empire Strikes Back definitely give it a read. Though it has every line for the movie in Yoda I mean Elizabethan speech; it is not a long read and most of all it is FUN!!!
