"What if William Shakespeare had written The Big Lebowski? The Dude has met the Bard--and he doth abide. Join "The Knave" and Sir Walter on a wild tale of mistaken identity, kidnapping, bowling, and a rug that, in faith, really tied the room together--in a sidesplitting Shakespearean comedy of errors and ninepins, told in five glorious acts of iambic pentameter and impeccable period prose. Already a theatrical hit and a worldwide viral phenomenon, Two Gentlemen of Lebowski comes alive anew in this definitive and lavishly illustrated edition, featuring recently discovered historical engravings, scholarly annotations, and a revelatory afterword from the author."--Back cover.

It was funny to read it in such a language and it definitely made me want to watch the movie again.

A must read for mutual fans of the Dude and the Bard.

This is one of the few books that has made me laugh out loud. Not merely a re-telling of "The Big Lebowski" in Shakespearian English, but also includes clever weaves of great lines from Shakespeare's plays.

A faithful rendering of the Coen Brothers' script, "The Big Lebowski", in the diction and iambic pentameter of Shakespeare's works.

It would be a valuable pre-cursor read to familiarize students with Shakespeare's English before tackling his real works.
