T: Good morning, dear friends! I invite you to our literary party, which is devoted to the creative work of outstanding British poets: Robert Burns, George Byron and William Shakespeare.
I think through the poetry we’ll become a little bit closer to British culture today.
The common theme connects the works of these poets. And this theme is “Love”. Love to native land, nature and of course love to a woman. The theme of our lesson is called: “Love rules over the world”
Love is responsible for harmony, which we try to maintain at all costs, for harmony implies living in peace and agreement. Harmony implies wholeness, for love breeds love. Hate implies division, for hate breeds hate.
Robert Burns is considered to be the creator of the Scottish songs. His songs are known for extraordinary truthfulness, passion and lovely melody. They reflect the people’s soul and national character. The poet’s song “Oh, my love is like a Red red rose” is one of the most lyrical songs.
P1- A red, red rose.(ученик читает декламирует стих-е)

Robert Burns was born in the family of a poor Scottish farmer
He grew up among common people whose values were honesty, justice, human solidarity, scorn for material values. He was one of them. He shared their values. His poems, songs and ballads stem from Scottish folklore.
T: Burns’ songs are the soul of music and it is not surprising that Beethoven, Schuman, Mendelson and other composed music to the poet’s verses. Russian Composers have also set many of Burns’ verses to music. Let’s listen to a song “Robin.” Music was composed by Russian composer Sviridov.

T: George Gordon Byron was born in 1788 in an old aristocratic family. His mother came of a rich Scottish family. His father was a poor army officer who spent his wife’s money very soon and died when the boy was three years old. The family lived in Scotland where the boy went to a grammar school. In 1789 Byron inherited the title of lord and the family estate, Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire from his grand uncle. George was sent to a Harrow school where boys of aristocratic families got their education.

P11– Тебя любил я, море! (translation)
P7 - George Byron was a thinker, a philosopher, a poet, who was anxious to get to the essence of things. A true artist who lived and acted from impulse, not from rules. A school boy of 16, he fell in love with a girl M.A. Chaworth, but the girl didn’t like Byron. Byron could not so easily forget her and that love gave a sad colouring to all his future life. In the poem “Dream” the poet speaks about his love.
