want to do justice to my read everything I was supposed to readto do justice to my read everything I was supposed to read school but didn t project After reading this and the others I mentioned above I feel like I can tackle them now and I don t even think I ll have to do it grudgingly I ve never enjoyed reading Shakespearean plays Most of this is due to them being plays and I don t like reading those I do really like Shakespearean uotes words insults some solilouies lines and a lot of other fun stuff he s nown for but reading the entire play itself ZZZZZZZ The one exception is Julius Caesar though I haven t read that in Jesus Christ has it really been 25 years since I was in 10th grade Anyway a uarter of a century has passed since I read that but I remember liking it I actually want to read it again and am willing to do so without any impetus from the aforementioned project Maybe one dayI also liked the English class I read it in and the teacher Ms Dix She often wore a purple dress and we called her Grimace on those days since she was ind of shaped like him My classmates with younger siblings brought Barney to our attention so that was thrown out from time to time too 40 year old Pierce in 2019 thinks this might be a bit mean but recognizes that 15 year olds are assholes whether it s 2019 1994 the year I was in 10th grade and coincidentally the year Ian punched Josh Hicks in the arm according the acknowledgements at the back of the book 1985 or 1955 15 year old Pierce in 1994 nows that these monikers were hung on her with love in the spirit of good natured ribbing she was a good teacher and a nice lady to boot She even laughed with us and slammed us from time to time too much to the general amusement of the class including the individuals in the crosshairs It seems like people didn t have their hurty buttons on display as much as they do nowadays I wonder how she s doing Oh She died a year and a half ago Scary how you can find anything on the internet Well since I m already thanking people who will never read this thank you Ms Dix for being one of my memorable teachers and for introducing me to a book I love which is probably due for another rereadDammit it looks like the stream of consciousaurus has struck again My apologiesREVIEW STARTS HEREI was trepidatious going into this The Star Wars stories can naturally handle a Shakepearean treatment but I wasn t sure about Back to the Future To some extent I think I was right but this was still a load of fun Ian s uite clever and his skill at barding things up has grown a lot since his first foray into these adaptations He also includes a couple of pages to help the layman follow some Shakespearean language and structure This taught me a couple of things and helped me brush up on a couple since I m hardly a Shakespearean scholarThere are two prereuisites for enjoying this book One is a love for Back to the Future and the other is an appreciation for Shakespeare Enjoyment is enhanced if you can recognize a myriad of additional pop culture references I caught a ton but I would love to now the ones I missed for I m sure there are plenty I bet Ian s hell on JeopardyThat being said I m afraid I won t be getting Ian s complete collected works since he s also done William Shakespeare s Much Ado About Mean Girls and while I have the appreciation for the bard I have zero interest in Mean Girls and that one would be lost on me Sad day But Ian and I are both fans of the Back to the Future franchise and hearingreading some of my favorite lines in Shakespearese is just as much of a hoot here as it is in his other books Upon what lookest thou thou arse like pate What dost thou wear Is it a Devo suit I don t really see the resemblance myselfHe also pulls some lines straight from the source material and gives them a slight twist Friends makers countrymen lend me your ears Some characters get full modified speeches One example is one of the Libyans tackling Shylock s solilouy when he starts off with Hath not a Libyan eyes and runs it through to its natural conclusion But my favorite part with the Libyans was when their.
