The Star Wars Heresies

Interpreting the Themes, Symbols and Philosophies of Episodes I, II and III

by Paul F. McDonald
Paperback
Publication Date: 30/09/2013
  $50.94
Despite the insatiable public appetite for all things Star Wars, the more analytical side of the saga is all too often ignored. This book offers a new way of seeing George Lucas' space opera - particularly the prequel trilogy, a series never given a fair chance because of constant comparisons to the iconic originals.

In the classic style of Joseph Campbell, the trilogy is viewed through the lens of myth and metaphor, revealing a body of work not only worthy of scholarly study but perhaps destined to find therein its home. A wide variety of philosophical and mythological themes are presented and expounded upon, drawing from a rich source of scholars, thinkers, writers, and poets from East and West alike. Heretical or not, the Star Wars prequels are a surprisingly rich source of insight into the whole saga as well as the human drama as a whole.
