Shakespeare Star Wars

Yeah, the literary mash-up genre does not appear to be going away anytime soon.

But Star Wars-meets-Shakespeare sounds like a fun idea that at least needn’t be taken too seriously —  Slate has an excerpt of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope by Ian Doescher (available in print and ebook).

I do rather like the woodcut-style illustrations. Huffington Post has some additional examples to check out: “Inside William Shakespeare’s ‘Star Wars’


Edit: And, Boing Boing has an even better, 16-page preview here.
