William Shakespeare’s “The Empire Striketh Back” by Ian Doescher #AmReading #Humor

Oh my stars!

I am a little late to the party on this book, but I have just started reading Ian Doescher’s version of “The Empire Striketh Back,” re-telling of George Lucas’s classic Star Wars (directed by Irvin Kershner) as if it was a Shakespearean play! The original movie’s story was written by Lucas and the screenplay was written by Leigh Brackett and Lawrence Kasdan.

This adaptation is SO funny!

I heartily recommend this one for some light “reading”!

Get a copy of “William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back” written by Ian Doescher on Amazon here.



  1. Me thinkest I must get this! Buy, I must. As a teacher of Shakespeare and lover of Star Wars (yeah, just finished The Mandalorian last night), I might get this as a happy-end-of-the-school-year-to-me gift. Thanks for the recommendation!
