When the best-selling William Shakespeare's Star Wars presented the original George Lucas trilogy in the form of an Elizabethan drama, the results blew the minds of Star Wars fans and Shakespeare buffs alike. Now the curtain rises once again on that star-crossed galaxy far away, this time revealing the tragedy, hubris, and doomed romance that will lead to the fall of the Republic and the rise of an Empire. In Episode III, the prequel chapters of the Star Wars saga climax with this tragic tale of a once-heroic knight's transformation into the darkest of villains. Masterful meter, Shakespearean soliloquies, and intricate Elizabethan illustrations will leave more than a few readers convinced that the Star Wars epic sprang straight from the Bard's quill.
