T: Good afternoon, dear friends. I’m glad to see you. Today we’ll have a special lesson. I think it will be interesting for you. At the very beginning of our lesson I’ll keep the topic a secret because I’d like you to guess. I’ve got some prompts for you. Look at the blackboard where you can see some quotations of famous people speaking of the person we will discuss today.
Let’s read them.
Плакаты с цитатами о Шекспире:
“He was the man who of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul.” John Dryden
2. “He was not of an age, but for all time.” Ben Jonson
3. “The stream of time, which is continually washing the dissoluble fabrics of other poets, passes without injury by the adamant of him .” Samuel Johnson
Can you guess what the theme of our lesson is?
P1: The theme of our lesson is William Shakespeare.
На экране появляется портрет Шекспира.
Whoever has her wish, you have your Will,
And Will to boot, and Will in overplus;
More than enough am I that vexed you still
To your sweet will making addition thus.
The sea, all water, yet receives rain still
And in abundance addeth to his store;
So you, being rich in Will add to your Will
One will of mine, to make your large Will more.
Let no unkind, no fair beseechers kill
Think all about one, and me in that one Will.
Недаром имя, данное мне, значит
“Желание”. Желанием томим,
Молю тебя: возьми меня в придачу
Ко всем другим желаниям твоим.
Ужели ты, чья воля так безбрежна,
Не можешь для моей найти приют?
И если есть желаньям отклик нежный
Ужель мои ответа не найдут?
Как в полноводном, вольном океане
Приют находят странники – дожди, –
Среди своих бесчисленных желаний
И моему пристанище найди.
T: Today we are going to talk about one of the greatest English poets and playwrights, William
Shakespeare, and his role in English literature. Now answer my questions, please. What do you know about him?
P1: I have read his famous works.
T: I hope you know the town he was born. Where was William Shakespeare born?
P2: William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon.
T: What Shakespeare’s plays do you know?
P3: There are many famous Shakespeare’s plays, for example, “Romeo and Juliet”, “Hamlet”, “Macbeth” and others.
T: Now, let’s listen to the information about W.Shakespeare (показ видеофрагмента о жизни и творчестве У.Шекспира и соответствующий рассказ на английском языке).
William Shakespeare was born on April, 23, 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. His parents were John and Mary. William attended the King’s New School in Stratford.
There, he studied Latin, rhetoric, logic, and literature. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway. They had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith.
Shakespeare’s life can be divided into three periods: the first 20 years in Stratford, which included his schooling, early marriage, and parentage; the next 25 years as an actor and
playwright in London; and the final five in retirement back in Stratford where he enjoyed moderate wealth gained from his success. The years linking the fi rst two periods are marked
by a lack of information about his life and are often referred to as the “dark years”. Shakespeare acted on the stage and wrote plays for the Globe Theatre. In 1599, he became one of the partners of the new Globe Theater. During his life, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets.
There are deep tragedies, light comedies, and historical dramas. In fact, the names of some of Shakespeare’s characters, such as Hamlet, Othello, Romeo and many others, are known even to people who have never seen the plays. Shakespeare spent the last year of his life in Stratford,
where he died in 1616. He was buried in the church of Stratford.
The first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays was published in 1623.
T: Next I am going to tell you about Shakespeare’s creative work.
You know many facts about Shakespeare`s life and I’d like to ask you some questions.
How many periods are there in Shakespeare`s life?
P1: There are three periods in Shakespeare`s life.
T: Do you remember these periods? Can you name them?
P2: Yes, we remember these periods. The first is youth and family and the second period is his professional and creative life in the theatre. The third period is called “Returnto his birthplace”.
T: I`ll give you cards and you should read the information about Shakespeare`s creative work. Now read the text to yourself for 2 minutes and tell the main characteristics of each period in one sentence.
• Shakespeare’s first period was one of experimentation. His early plays are characterised, to a degree, by wooden and superficial construction and verse.
• Shakespeare’s second period includes his most important plays concerned with English history, his so-called joyous comedies, and two major tragedies. In this period, his style and approach became highly individualised.
• The most famous Shakespearean tragedies appeared in the 3rd period. In these plays, the dramatist reaches his full maturity. He presents the great problems of mankind.
• In his final period, Shakespeare turned to romance or tragicomedy. Some commentators have seen the change in Shakespeare’s mood as evidence of a more serene view of life on his part, but it may merely reflect the theatrical fashion of the day.
T: Now let’s check your understanding of the text. Answer my question, please. How many periods are there in Shakespeare`s creative work?
P3: There are four periods in Shakespeare`s creative work.
T: Give the main characteristic for each period.
P1: Shakespeare’s first period is called “The World of Evil and Violence”. It was one of experimentation. His early plays are characterised to a degree by superficial construction
P2: Shakespeare’s second period is called “Golden Age of Shakespeare’s plays”. It includes his most important historical plays, light and happy comedies, and two major tragedies. In this period he puts his mark on his work with a personalised style and approach.
P3: Shakespeare’s third period is called “The Peak of his Creative Work”. Shakespeare’s well-known tragedies are written as the dramatist reaches his full maturity and explores universal human problems.
P4: Shakespeare’s fourth period is called “Romantic Dramas” including romantic tragicomedy. This might represent evidence of Shakespeare’s more serene view of life but could also reflect the theatrical fashion of the day.
T: So, I see that you, friends, know about Shakespeare and his works.
T: Here is a chart of Shakespeare’s concepts, or, in other words, main ideas on the screen. I’ll give you a copy. Think of Shakespeare’s concepts and fill in the blanks of the chart. You have one minute to complete the task.
T: Are you ready? I’d like you to compare your chart with mine. This is my version, and I’ve filled it according to the view of famous scholars.
I’d like to tell you about concepts in Shakespeare’s creative work.
The first concept is friendship. Shakespeare considered friendship to be the finest feeling. In his opinion, friendship has all the fullness of love experiences.
The next concept is love. Love is the main theme in Shakespeare’s creative work, as it is a mysterious feeling of man. It gives man the greatest happiness. According to Shakespeare, love is the highest spiritual form for man. Every person has the right for love and happiness.
The next concept is family. For Shakespeare the word family was very important. In his works, family is explained as a small group of close relatives. Every family member should follow strict family traditions which plays a certain role within their family.
The next concept is betrayal. I hope you remember the meaning of this word. Help me. What does it mean?
P1: Betrayal means to break someone’s trust, “предательство”.
T: In Shakespeare’s works evil, crime, and betrayal are normal experiences of life. Sometimes to correct the world, one has to commit crime.
The next concept is death. Shakespeare believed men didn’t die. Instead, he recreates himself in his children and creative work. So, death is defeated in the end.
Shakespeare’s works are devoted to themes of friendship, love, family, loyalty, betrayal, and death. Due to them we can learn the details of Shakespeare’s epoch.
Now, let’s play. Developing the theme of Shakespeare’s main concepts, I’d like you to read some famous phrases found in different Shakespeare’s plays. They can be short or long. In English they are called “Shakespearianisms” and in Russian it sounds like “шекспиризмы”.
Nowadays we use them as proverbs and sayings. I’ll give you some cards with Shakespearianisms on them and your task is to translate them. Pictures on the screen will help you.
You have 50 seconds for each Shakespearianism. Ученики делают перевод шекспиризмов.
T: OK. Let’s compare your translation with your classmates’ ones.
Ученики сравнивают переводы шекспиризмов.
T: And now let’s compare it with the author’s translation. Read them one by one.
Ученики сравнивают переводы шекспиризмов.
T: Please write them down with the names of the interpreters.
1) What a piece of work is a man! (“Hamlet”)
Что за мастерское создание – человек! (М.Лозинский)
2) Brevity is the soul of wit. (“Hamlet”)
Краткость – сестра таланта. (А.Чехов)
3) Curiosity killed the cat. (“Macbeth”)
Любопытство до добра не доведет. (Б.Пастернак)
4) All is well that ends well. (“Macbeth”)
Все хорошо, что хорошо кончается. (М.Лозинский)
5) Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. (“Hamlet”)
Не все в порядке в Датском королевстве. (Б.Пастернак)
6) A fool’s paradise. (“Romeo and Juliet”)
Мир фантазий. (Б.Пастернак)
7) Salad days. (“Antonius and Cleopatra”)
Молодо – зелено. (Б.Пастернак)
T: Well, I hope we make sure that these phrases from Shakespeare’s plays of the 16th century live not only in books, but are also used in everyday speech.
At the end of our lesson we’ll recite some sonnets written by W. Shakespeare.
First of all, I’d like to give you some information about the sonnets. As already mentioned today, Shakespeare wrote a collection of 154 sonnets. They tell us the history of love and friendship of the poet, as well as his attitude to society. They deal with such themes as the passage of time, beauty and mortality. The first publication of Shakespeare’s sonnets was in 1609.
Let me recite you Sonnet 130 and interpreted by S. Marshak.
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound.
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
Ученики рассказывают сонеты.
Ее глаза на звезды не похожи
Нельзя уста кораллами назвать,
Не белоснежна плеч открытых кожа,
И черной проволокой вьется прядь.
С дамасской розой, алой или белой,
Нельзя сравнить оттенок этих щек.
А тело пахнет так, как пахнет тело,
Не как фиалки нежный лепесток.
Ты не найдешь в ней совершенных линий,
Особенного света на челе.
Не знаю я, как шествуют богини,
Но милая ступает по земле.
И все ж она уступит тем едва ли,
Кого в сравненьях пышных оболгали.
