What comes to mind when you think of William Shakespeare? Work in groups and write your ideas below.

T. Let’s read the text to get some information about this poet. (the text is on the blackboard. P. reads the text.) The last half of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th centuries are known as the golden age of English literature. It was the time of the English Renaissance and sometimes it is even called ‘’ the age of Shakespeare”. William Shakespeare is the world’s greatest poet and dramatist. Every educated person knows the works of the greatest poet. Words and phrases from Shakespeare’s works have become part of the English language and are used by all. Shakespeare made fuller use of the English language than any other writer. There is no better way for a foreigner to understand the richness of the English language than by studying how Shakespeare used it.

P8. Did he write only about love?

P9. Did he work as an actor?

P10. When did he die?

T. To get the answers to these questions you will work in groups and find them in your texts. Each group will get the text, read it attentively and find the answers to the questions. Then we discuss them.

Group I. William Shakespeare was born on April, 23, 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon. His father was a glove-maker and a dealer in wool and had several houses in Stratford. He was a respected figure in the town. His mother was a farmer’s daughter. In his childhood William went to the Grammar school, where, besides reading and writing, he was taught Latin, Greek and other subjects. When he had free time he liked to go to the forest and to the river. When actors visited Stratford, William liked to watch them. He was interested in that profession and decided to become an actor himself. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. His wife was eight years older then William. He had got three children: a daughter Susanna and twins Judith and Hamnet.

Group II. William lived in Stratford until he was about twenty-one. Then he went to London. We don’t know why he left Stratford-upon-Avon. There is absolutely nothing about his life for the next seven years. There is a story that Shakespeare’s fist job in London was holding rich men’s horses at the theatre door. But nobody can be sure that this story is true. He became a member of the company, known as “Chamberlain’s Men “, which played at the “Theatre”.

Shakespeare played on its stage and wrote plays for this theatre. He was a good friend to his comrades in the theatre. Shakespeare’s experience as an actor helped him greatly in writing of his plays. His knowledge of the stage and his poetical genius made his plays the most wonderful ones ever written.

Group III. Shakespeare wrote 37 plays. Among them there are deep tragedies, light comedies, historical dramas. The characters in Shakespeare’s plays seem as if they were real people whom we could recognize at once if we met them in ordinary life. In fact, the names of some Shakespeare’s characters, such as Hamlet, Othello, Romeo and many others, are known even to people who have never seen the plays. He wrote 154 sonnets. They tell us the history of love and friendship of the poet, his attitude to society. Shakespeare spent the last year of his life at Stratford, where he died in 1616. He was buried in the church of Stratford. His famous works are: “Romeo and Juliet”, “Hamlet”, “Othello”, “King Lear”, “Macbeth”, “All’s Well That Ends Well”, “Twelfth Night”, “Much Ado About Nothing”, “Richard I”, “Henry IV”.

T. Many of Shakespeare’s sonnets have been translated into Russian by S. Marshak, a well-known Russian poet. Marshak gave them a new life and a place in Russian poetry. The next task: I’ll give you the sentences from the sonnet #130, you are to put them in order to make the whole sonnet. The Russia variant will help you. Sonnet # 130

My mistress eyes are nothing like the sun,

Coral is far more read 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 damask, 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 goodness’ go;

My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.

And yet, by heaven, I think my love is rare

As any she belied with false compare.


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 сено,

Не как фиалки нежной лепесток.

Ты не найдешь в ней совершенных линий,

Особенного света на челе,

Не знаю я как шествуют богини,

Но милая ступает по земле.

( Ps read the sonnet).

T. let’s listen to the sonnet in English, Kazakh and Russian languages.

(Ps listen to the sonnet in three languages.)


Now let’s have a rest and write a small poem in 5 lines. Let’s remember how to write a cinquain.


Line 1 – one word topic.

Line 2 – two describing words.

Line 3 – action words.

Lived, wrote, created

All the world’s a stage.

Talent.
