Let us summarize the information about the biography of this great man. How much do we know about the life of this great man?


P1: Although the name of William Shakespeare is well-known in the world, we know very little about his life. He was born on April 23rd, 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. His mother, Marry Arden, was a daughter of a farmer. His father John Shakespeare was a glove-maker who had an office in Stratford-upon-Avon.


P2: Little is known about William’s childhood. He got his education at the Grammar school.

He got married in 1582 to Anne Hathaway and had three children, Susannah, the eldest, then twins- a son Hamnet, and another girl, Judith.


P3: William lived in Stratford until he was twenty-one, when he went to London. We don’t know exactly why he did it. Some people say that the reason was his love of poetry and theatre.There is a story that Shakespeare’s first work in London was holding rich men’s horses at the theatre door. But nobody can say whether this story is true.


P4: Later, Shakespeare became an actor and a member of one of the big acting companies. Soon he began to write plays for his company and in a few years he became a well-known author.


P5: Shakespeare’s work as an actor (although he usually acted only small parts) helped him greatly in writing of his plays. He knew the stage and that helped him to write the most wonderful plays ever written.

6. Аудирование. “To be, or not to be?”

-You are going to watch and to listen to an extract from a famous play. Do you know its name? Who is the main character?


To be, or not to be, that is the question: -

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune:

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing, end them? - To die -; to sleep,

No more; - and, by a sleep, to say we end

The heart ache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh in heir to, - 'tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish 'd. To die; - to sleep; -

To sleep!

Быть или не быть - таков вопрос;

Что благородней духом - покоряться

Пращам и стрелам яростной судьбы

Иль, ополчасъ на море смут, сразить их

Противоборством? Умереть, уснуть –

И только; и сказать, что сном кончаешь

Тоску и тысячу природных мук,

Наследье плоти, - как такой развязки

Не жаждать? Умереть, уснуть, —

Уснуть!

(перевод М. Лозинского)

P: It’s “Hamlet”. Hamlet is the main character.
