Dear friends! Today our pupils make a performance in honor of great poets of
Great Britain. Great Britain is a country that has made its great contribution into world’s culture.
There are many world- famous names in English literature: William Shakespeare, Robert Burns,
George Gordon Byron and many others.
English poetry has its deep-rooted and long- lived traditions. They go back as to the folk songs and ballads, tales and legends of English people. That’s why we begin our performance with the story about English Folklore.
(Pupils perform the song “Hush- a-bye”)
“Each epoch” said S.Marshak the most talented translator of English poetry, “selects from the world, what is closest to it in spirit”
English folklore immortalized the name of Robin Hood and his men who fought against oppression and injustice.
Robin Hood is a partly legendary, partly historical character who lived in the 12th 13th
centuries, the hero of many ballads robbed the rich to give the poor. These ballads
handed down from one generation to another.
Now you’ll see a scene based on legends about Robin Hood.
(The scene is performed).
English folklore is rich in fair-tales and anecdotes full of humor and lyricism, love of freedom.
(A dance is performed).
Let us see a scene based on folk tales and anecdotes and let us smile.
(The song “Donna” is performed.
Speaking about English folklore we can’t touch upon the English children’s folklore.
A remarkable poet, an outstanding master in translation, a man of great ranger of interests
and knowledge S.Y.Marshak studied thoroughly the English language and the history
of English literature. In the university library in London he accidently came across the English
Children’s folklore full of fanciful humour. He translated into Russian these classical pieces of poetry, songs, rhymes and limericks which were rather difficult to be translated.
We also tried to do more than that we had a competition.
Now we are going our best translation of children’s folklore.
(Limericks are performed)
A very old man of Japan
Wrote verses that never could scan.
When asked why this was,
He replied, “It’s because I always try to get as many words into the last line as I possibly can.”
This little pig went to market,
This little pig stayed at home,
This little pig had roast beef,
This little pig had none,
And this little pig cried,
I can’t find my way home.
Humpty – Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty-Dumpty had a great wall.
All the king’s horses,
All the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
Sir Christopher Wren
Said, I am going to dine with some men
If anybody calls
Say I am designing St. Paul’s.
P2.The next item of our program is the British lyric poetry. But first, let us have a short

6. What English literature character pronounced:
“To be or not to be?” (William Shakespeare )
William Shakespeare is the greatest playwright in history of English and world literature.
He reflected the spirit of Renaissance, the epoch of great discoveries darings, with all its
contradictions and tragedies. He wrote 37 plays together.
P2. Shakespeare is also known as the author of 154 sonnets. His sonnets like his plays
Reveal the entire gamut of human emotions.
All Shakespeare’s sonnets have been translated into Russian by Marshak, the well-known
“Each of the sonnets “said he, “is like a piece of music; each sonnet is important not only from the point of view of meaning, but from that of melody”. An understanding of the sonnets is very important for an understanding of all Shakespeare the playwright.
(Sonnet 90 is performed).
The folklore traditions were unheld by the great national poet of Scotland of the 18th
century Robert Burns.
(The song “Auld Land Syne” is performed).
He wrote all kinds of poems- beautiful and tender songs, ballads, verses.
( A poem by Robert Burns).
With tenderness, understanding and simplicity he depicts the life he knew, and his poems touch the heart and soul of everybody. His verses never die!
We finish our party with song “Air. The Bells of St. Petersburg”.
This poem was written by Thomas Moore under the influence of Byron’s poetry. Late it was
Translated into Russian by Ivan Kozlov and became a favourite song of Russian people.
