T: That’ right. But what plays by Shakespeare do you know? You can say them in Russian?
P: "Ромео и Джульета", "Гамлет", "Король Лир", "Отелло".
( учитель переводит названия на английский язык).
P5:W. Shakespeare was born in 1564. When he was a schoolboy he had no time to rest. When he
had a free time he went to the forest or to the river Avon.
Actors and actresses came to Stratford - on - Avon that time. William liked to watch them.
He went to London. There he became an actor and he wrote plays. He was a play writer too. His
plays were staged in many theatres and were translated into many languages. That made
Shakespeare a very famous man. We know such plays as "King Lear", "Othello", "Hamlet" and
others. He wrote many sonnets too. We don't know many facts from Shakespeare’s life but
many people know his plays and admire them today.
T: This is the house where, Shakespeare was born. Here he played as a boy, attended a local
Grammar school and married Ann Hothaway. Here he returned to the town with which his name
is closely linked. This is the monument to Shakespeare 's there and this is the Royal Shakespeare
's theatre that was opened nowadays. Only Shakespeare 's plays are staged here. Today
thousands of tourists visit Stratford each year.
T: I know that you prepared some poems and sonnets of Shakespeare. I prepared a poem too. It
is from his play "Macbeth" - the last monolog of Macbeth. Listen to it.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player.
That struts and frets his hours upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Так- в каждом деле. Завтра, завтра, завтра, -
А дни ползут, и вот уж в книге жизни
Читаем мы последний слог и видим,
Что все слова лишь озаряли путь к могиле пыльной.
Дотлевай, огарок!
Жизнь – это только тень, комедиант,
Поясничавший полчаса на сцене
И тут же позабытый; это повесть,
Которую пересказал дурак;
В ней много слов и страсти, нет лишь смысла.
(Учащиеся читают по частям монолог Жака из комедии В. Шекспира As you like it")
All the world's a stage.
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms
Then the whining school - boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.
And then the lover.
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow.
Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth.
And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part.
The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
In second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.
Listen to the same monolog acting by the English actor (прослушивание монолога)
And the translation of this poem by T. Shchepkina Kupernic:
Весь мир – театр.
В нём женщины, мужчины – все актёры.
У них свои есть выходы, уходы,
И каждый не одну играет роль.
Семь действий в пьесе той:
Сперва младенец,
Ревущий горько на руках у мамки.
Потом плаксивый школьник с книжкой, сумкой,
С лицом румяным нехотя, улиткой,
Ползущий в школу.
А затем любовник, вздыхающий, как печь с балладой грустной
В честь брови милой.
А затем солдат, чья речь всегда проклятьями полна,
Обросший бородой, как леопард,
Ревнивый к чести, забияка в ссоре,
Готовый славу бренную искать
Хоть в пушечном жерле.
Затем судья.
С брюшком округлым, где каплун запрятан,
Со строгим взором, стриженой бородкой,
Шаблонных правил и сентенций кладезь, -
Так он играет роль.
Шестой же возраст –
Уж это будет тощий Панталоне,
В очках, в туфлях, у пояса – кошель.
В штанах, что с юности берёг широких
Для ног иссохших: мужественный голос
Сменяется опять дискантом детским:
Пищит, как флейта…
А последний акт,
Конец всей этой странной, сложной пьесы –
Второе детство, полузабытьё:
Без глаз, без чувств, без вкуса, без всего…
T: Shakespeare's language is very rich. It was easy for the common people of those days to
