Учитель: Смирнов Андрей Александрович

Poetry and reality
1. Introduction and brain-storming:
-Do you like poetry?
-What poets do you read?
-Is it more difficult to understand poetic language?
(Watching episode from the film Dead poets society):
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read
and write poetry because we are members of the human race.
And the human race is filled with passion.
Medicine, law, business are necessary to sustain life.
…Poetry, beauty, romance, love these are what we stay
alive for.
-Do you agree with that?
Today we are planning to work with a very special poetic
form called haiku. This is a Japanese verse form made of three
lines which in Russian interpretation sounds something like
this:
Майские дожди
Водопад похоронили
Залили дождем
-What is special about haiku?
2. Haiku
Silence…a strangled
Telephone has forgotten
That it should ring
to strangle to kill someone by pressing their throat with
your hands, a rope.
a strangled cry, voice, etc.
The word strangled creates a special atmosphere of this text
and if we replace it by some completely different adjective like
red, or annoying, or apple 4s, then the meaning of the text can
change completely.
3. Chose the best title for the haiku
a) Telephone is broken
b) Loneliness
c) In the phone-box
4. Write the description of the day based on the haiku. Add the
paragraph before and after the haiku.
5. Work in pairs. Imagine that the telephone finally rang. Use
these shuffled sentences to act out two telephone
conversations.
What style are these dialogues?
6. Make up your own dialogue. It can be between:
-two friends
-a boy and a girl
-a parent and a child
-a boss and an employee
7. Does the haiku remind you of a similar experience you
have had? Tell the class where? when? why? and how? it
happened.
8. There is another very popular Japanese verse form -
tanka. It consists of five lines and sounds like this:
Право приятно
Когда развернешь наугад
Древнюю книгу
И в сочетаниях слов
Душу родную найдешь
Transform this Haiku into Tanka by adding two more lines:
Silence…a strangled
Telephone has forgotten
That it should ring

Empty room:
One swinging coat hanger
Measures the silence.
