Т: Two weeks ago you got a task to prepare reports about William Shakespeare, his life in Strartford-on-Avon, the Globe theatre and his works. Now we’d like to see the results of your work.



Pupil 1: Shakespeare is the founder of the English literary language.
During our project work we investigated many facts from Shakespeare's life and creative work and came to a conclusion that he must be called the father or the founder of the English literary language, as Pushkin is in Russia.

Pupil 2: The name of William Shakespeare is known all over the world. The last half of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th centuries are known as the Golden Age of English Renaissance and sometimes are called “The Age of Shakespeare”. His creative work is the highest peek of the English Renaissance. His influence on the further development of the world  literature is considered to be unprecedented

Pupil 3: People often call Sh. “Our National Bard”, “The Immortal Poet of Nature”. We really know few facts of his life and many of them are doubtful. But some facts are known to us and are proved by documents.

Shakespeare put a question in front of the mankind: "To be or not to be?", but he didn't give an answer himself. He made everybody seek the answer independently. He is a genius creator and one of the most mysterious writers in the world.

Pupil 4: The first fact of Sh`s biography are that he was born on April 23, 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon. His father, John Shakespeare, dealt in corn, malt, leather, hides and wool, and became so prominent in local affairs at Stratford-upon-Avon that he was made the mayor. William was the third child of the family. Life must have been pleasant for him during the days of his father's prosperity.


Pupil 5: When Shakespeare was 17, his father's fortune took a downward turn, and the family began to run into debt. A year later William was married.

About 1587 Shakespeare left Stratford. He attracted to the company of poets and actors, and by 1592 had made enough of an impact on the capital to attract enemies as well as friends. By 1599 he was part-owner of a new playhouse called the Globe.

hello_html_m5875c61e.gif

The original Globe Theatre


Pupil 6: Shakespeare spent the greater part of his life in London, though he paid regular visits to his home. His adult career was a happy one. During 20 astonishingly creative years, Shakespeare's output was enormous. His works can be divided into 4 main phases: his literary work, closing in 1594, resulted in the two long poems, "Venus and Adonis" and "The Rape of Lucrece", historical dramas such as Henry VI and Richard III, the tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet" and such comedies as "Comedy of Errors" and "The Taming of the Shrew". In the second phase, 1594-1599, Shakespeare wrote three of his greatest historical plays — "Henry V" and "Henry IV" and the comedies "Much Ado About Nothing" and "As You Like It". The third period was the period of his great tragedies "Hamlet", "Othello", "Macbeth", "King Lear" and "Anthony and Cleopatra".


Pupil 7: About 1611, Shakespeare decided to retire to Stratford. He paid off the family debts, and on April 23, 1616, at the age of 52, he died. As his legacy to mankind he left the fruits of his creative years; 37 plays, 2 long narrative poems and his incomparable sonnets.


Pupil 8: Fun fact: William Shakespeare was the only member of his family that could read or write!

T: Thank you, my dear friend. It was so interesting.


III.Беседа о произведениях В. Шекспира.

1.T:You know that Shakespeare wrote 37 plays for the theatre: tragedies and comedies. A tragedy is a serious play that ends sadly, especially with the death of the main character. For example, "Romeo and Juliet" is one of the best-known Shakespeare's tragedies.

A comedy is a play intended to entertain people and make them laugh. Look at the list of Shakespeare's great plays. Students, look at the screen. This is a list of some of Shakespeare's great plays. The task is to translate the names of these plays into English. Ok, you are quite right. Good for you. And now guess which of them are tragedies and which are comedies.

"Macbeth"

"Julius Caesar"

"Antony and Cleopatra"


2. T: We know that Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets. They all are very popular and loved by people. All of them were translated into different languages. 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 lines from the sonnet #130; you are to put them in order to make the whole sonnet. The Russia variant will help you. Now let`s listen to the sonnets which you have learned. Thank you for your answers.
