I spotted this excerpt from Star Wars: Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth written by Karen Miller on Tumblr and wanted to post it here under Star Wars is Poetry.
This is proof that yet again, the extended universe of Star Wars gives us so much more to add to these characters, particularly from the cinematic universe. And it also supports my posts on Obi-Wan feeling a tremendous amount of loss and guilt over what happened to Anakin on Mustafar.
There are a lot of tragic characters in the Star Wars universe, but Obi-Wan has to be right up there in the top three (next to Anakin Skywalker and Ben Solo).
“Such a dichotomy. [Anakin] is the most fearless man I have ever fought with … yet a part of him remains that small, frightened boy who left Tatooine eleven years ago. The boy [Obi-wan] knew, to his shame, he’d sometimes failed to reach.”
— Obi-wan Kenobi on Anakin Skywalker in Karen Miller’s Star Wars: Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth
Padawanlost’s tumblr is one of the better ones I follow, particularly when it comes to Star Wars trivia and canon material. There are really only a few on Tumblr that I put right up there as important enough to follow for Star Wars history and canon discussions.
If you have any Star Wars books that you’re particularly interested in or would like to see featured in my Star Wars is Poetry blog series that celebrates Star Wars literature, please let me know in the comments. I am happy to feature it on my blog.
