Well, Paul F. McDonald wrote a great book about the Prequels. It's called: "The Star Wars Heresies: Interpreting the Themes, Symbols and Philosophies of Episodes I, II and III".
I really don't want to give to many Things away, but... First, The Star Wars Heresies focuses only on the Prequels. Mentions are made to the Original Trilogy, Clone Wars, and Expended Universe - particularly James Lucenos Darth Plagueis novel - but only to the extent they illustrate a particular point. Given that the Prequels are regarded by some as the black sheep in the Star Wars family, it's easy for authors to zero in on the Original Trilogy, especially the ever-quotable Yoda. Fortunately, by excluding its more popular cousin, McDonald is able to engage in a much closer analysis of the Prequel story. Second, many other works only point out parallels to Joseph Campbell's "hero's journey" or Buddhism, but McDonald goes beyond those sources. He draws upon impressive range of real-world mythological and religious traditions, including obscure Chinese legends and linguistic translations of the names of key characters (it turns out Qui-Gon Jinn's name foreshadows his role at the end of Revenge of the Sith). The Star Wars Heresies can't be categorized quite so cleanly as about philosophy, religion, mythology, or politics because it draws upon all of these fields. This book is definitely a must-read for fans of the Prequels. McDonald engages in a "close reading" of the films to find parallels between mythological patterns and the Prequels. However, this isn't like a high school English class that analyzes a book to death and takes all of the fun out of it. McDonald uses his analysis in order to allow readers to gain a deeper appreciation for the Prequels and where they fit within the broader scheme of human mythology. There are many subtle moments in the movies that fans might overlook but are actually imbued with deep significance. While the naysayers whine about the prequels showing the heroes as flawed and the government even more so, McDonald exposes the cracked superstructure of the galaxy-wide Republic as well as the Chosen One, then reveals how the surrounding forces and events caused both to fall. With comparative examples quoted from classic works on mythology, Buddhism, Taoism, and ancient pantheons, he shows how the characters' stubborn refusal to learn lessons and accept change leads to dire consequences for all. This applies to everyone from Anakin to the Jedi Council to the Galactic Senate. If you are on the fence about the seemingly sudden conversion of Anakin to the Dark Side and the Republic into the Empire, this book clearly details how such a rapid shift was not only possible, but inevitable. McDonald tackles all of the prequels' most controversial subjects, from Anakin and Padme's romance-which might at times seem stilted compared to the sort of screen romances we are used to but which, as he demonstrates, is extremely representative of the classic courtly romance tradition from which it derives-to Jar Jar Binks, whose-to many-irritating qualities are in keeping with the mythological role of the Fool and/or Trickster, to-perhaps best of all-the midichlorians, which he believes are likely the most misunderstood aspect of the entire saga. What makes his midichlorian defense so blazingly brilliant is how he proves that all of the evidence is right there in the film itself, if one pays close attention to the script's exact wording. The book is separated into three parts, one per film. Each part contains chapters that examine a character or a circumstance within an archetypal framework, i.e. "The Master," "The Queen," "The Mother," etc.

All this, amazing. Totally agree. I knew about it in part. Nice to read some well thought comment :)

Have you seen the documentary "The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey"? You could only view on Amazon Video for a long time, but it finally got a Dvd release. Paul F. McDonald has even advertised the documentation on his blog. That's how I found out about it.
KatyTorres Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017
No yet but I'd love to! I'll try to find a way to see it. Any Prequel trilogy related stuff is my thing :) 
thanks for the suggestion.

Please don't take this the wrong way, I mean, I'm not trying to advertise them, but I think you could also like the following Star Wars Novels, if you enjoy the Prequels: "Shatterpoint", "Cloak of Deception", "The approaching Storm", "Labyrinth of evil" and "Darth Plagueis". If you havn't already read them (or listened to their audiobooks), of course.

It's the best of the prequels, so it's good; it's just not up to the standard set by episodes 4,5, and 6.
GoliathTheDwarf Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2016
Me too. It's an emotional movie about the power of emotions, and I love it.
