With sparking sides of human nature. Capter XIV situations often based on humour he criticized the weak

We got out вышли at Sonning, and went for a walk round the village. It‟s the most fairy-look on the whole river. It‟s more like a stage станционный village than one built of bricks and mortar. Every house is smothered утопопленный, покрытый in roses, and now, in early

June, thery were bursting forth выше in clouds of dainty изящный splendour роскошь, богатство . If you stop at Sonning, put up остановитесь at the “Bull”, behind the church. It‟s a veritable picture of an old country inn трактир гостиница, with a green,

square courtyard beneath their ale

двор при доме in front, where, on seats внизуthe trees, the old men group of an evening to drink сплетничать over village politics; решётчатый windows and

пиво ande gossip

with low quaint rooms and latticed awkward коридор. громоздкий stairs and winding спиральный passages

We roamed бродить about sweet милый Sonning for an hour or so, and then, it being too late to push on продвигаться вперѐд past Reading, we decided to go back to one of the Shiplake islands, and put up остановиться there for the night. It was still early when we got settled обосноваться and George said that, as we had plenty of time, it would be a splendid opportunity to try a good, slap-up первоклассный supper. He said he would show us what could be done up приводить в порядок the river in the way of по части cooking, and suggested предложил that, with the vegetables and the remains остатки of the cold beef and general odds and ends, we should make an Irish stew тушёное мясо. It seemed a fascinating очаровательный idea. George gathered wood and made a fire, and Harris and I started to peel чиститьthe potatoes. I should never have thought that peeling potatoes was such an undertaking предприятие. The job turned out to be the biggest thing of its kind that I had ever been in. We began cheerfully, one might almost say skittishly живо but our light-heartedness беззаботность was gone by the

time the first potato was finnished. The more we peeled, the more the peel there seemed to be left on оставалось; by the time we had got all the peel off отделаться and all the eyes out утомлять, there was no potato left – at least none worth стоящий speaking of. George came and had a look at it – it was about the size of pea-nut арахис. He said: “Oh, that won‟t do! You‟re wasting тратить попустуthem. You must scarpe скоблить them.”

So we scared them and that was harder work than peeling. They are such an extraordinary shape, potatoes – all bumps шишка and warts нарост and hollows углубление. We worked steadily for five-andtwenty minutes, and did four potatoes. Then we struck взбунтовались. We said we should require the rest of the evening for scrapping ourselves. I never saw such a thing as potato-scraping for making a fellow in a mess беспорядок. It seemed difficult to believe that the potato-scrapings in which Harris and I stood.half-smothered покрытый, could have come off отделиться four potatoes. It shows you what can be done with economy and care. George said it was absurd to have only four potatoes in an Irish stew, so we washed half a dozen or so more and put them in without peeling. We also put in a cabbage капуста and about half a peck of peas пол-осьмины горошка. George stirred it all up, and then he said that there seemed to be a lot of room место to spare сберечь, so we overhauled отремонтированный both the hampers корзина с продуктами, and picked out отборный all the odds and ends and the remnants остатки, and added them to the stew. There were half a pork pie and a bit of cold boiled bacon left, and we put them in. Then George found half a tin of potted консервированный salmon лосось, and he emptied that into the pot горшок. He said that was the advantage выгода, польза of Irish stew: you got rid избавиться of such a lot of things. I fished out

выудитьa couple of eggs that had got cracked, and we put those in. George said they would thicken the gravy соус.

I forget the other ingridients, but I know nothing was wasted; and I remember that towards the end, Montmorency, who had evinced проявлять great interest in the proceedings throughout во всех отношениях, strolled бродитьaway with an earnest and thoughtful air вид, reappearing, a few minutes afterwards потом, with a dead water-rat in his mouth, which he evidently wished to present us contribution взносto the dinner; whether in a sarcastic spirit, or with a general desire to assist, I cannot say. We had a discussion as to whether the rat should do in or not. Harris said that he thought it would be all right, mixed up with the other things, and that every little helped; but George stood up for precedent! He said he had never heard of water-rats in Irish stew, and he would rather be on the safe side на всякий случай, and not try experiments. Harris said: “If you never try a new thing how can you tell what it‟s like? It‟s men such as you that hamper чинить препятствия the world‟s progress. Think of the man who first tried German sausage!” It was a great success, that Irish stew, I don‟t think I ever enjoyed a meal more. There was something so fresh and piquant palate about it. One‟s нёбо gets so tired of the old hackneyed избитый, банальный things: here was a dish with a new flavour, with a

taste like nothing else on earth. And it was nourishing питательный, too. As George said, there was good stuff состав in it. The peas and potatoes might have been a bit softer, but we all had good teeth, so that did not matter much; and as for the gravy, it was a poem – a little too rich, perhaps, for a weak stomach, but nutritious питательный.

Unit II Text two(p.39) Encountering directors By C.Samuels Interviewing Ingmar Bergman (Extract) Ingmar Bergman – a famous Swedish film director, writer and theatre producer was born in 1918. His psychological films are well known all over the world. Crisis(1945), Smiles of Summer Night(1956), Seventh Seal(1957), Wild Strawberries(1958), The Silence(1963), Autumn Sonata(1978) are only a few films made by him. I.Bergman himself wrote the scripts сценарий for most of his films and won awards for many of them. In the focus of his attention people‟s fates судьба, рок are put. The people usually have a lot of problems.

Bergman focuses attention on the fate of his characters are isolated people who suffer from the harsh суровый realities of the cruel world in which they live. It‟s difficult to understand the majority of Bergman‟s films since distinction between reality and the world of the imagination is blurred неясный, расплывчатый. Samuels: Mr. Bergman, I‟d like to start with a rather general question: If I were asked to cite цитировать a single reason for your pre-eminence преимущество among film directors, I would point to your creation of a cpecial world. You are, in fact, very much like a writer. Why didn‟t you become a one? Bergman: When I was a child, I suffered from an almost complete lack of words. My education was very rigid несгибаемый, негибкий; my father was a priest священник. As a result, I lived in a private world of ny own dreams. I played with my puppet S.: AndB.: Excuse me. I had very few contacts with reality or channels to it. I was afraid of my father, my mother, my elder brother – everything.Playing with this puppet theatre and a projection device кинопроекционный аппарат I had was my only form of self-expression. I had great difficulty with fiction выдумкой and realty; as a small child I mixed them up so much that my family always said I was a liar. S.: I want to interrupt you for just a moment. This description of your childhood resembles походить one classic description of the genesis присхождения of a writer. Was it only the accident of the puppet theatre that sent you the way of theatre rather than of books? B.: No. When I began writing I liked it very much. But I never felt that writing was my cup of tea то что нравится. And I always lacked words; it has always been very difficult for me to find the world I want. I have always felt suspicious both what I say and what others say to me. I always feel something has been out. When I read a book. I read very slowly. It takes me a lot of time to read a play. S.: Do you direct it in your head? кукольный theatre.

B.: In a way. I have to translate the words into speeches, flesh and blood. I have an enormous need for contact with an audience, with other people. For me, words are not satisfying не удовлетворяющие. S.: With a book, the reader is elsewhere где-то в другом месте. B.: When you read, words have to pass through your conscious здравый mind to reach your emotions and your soul. In film and theatre, things go directly to the emotions. What I need is to come in contact with others. S.: I see that, but it raises a problem I‟m sure you‟ve often discussed. Your films have emotional impact импульс, but since they are also the most intellectually difficult of contemporary films, isn‟t there sometimes a contradiction противоречие between the two effects? How do you react when I say that while I watched “The Rite”, my feelings were interfered with by my baffled effort at comprehension? B.: Your approach is wrong. I never asked you to understand, I ask only that you feel. S.: And the film asks me to understand. The film continiously makes us wonder what the spectacle means. B.: But‟s you. S.: It‟s not the film? B.: No. “The Rite ритуал” merely только, простоexpresses my resentment негодование, возмущение against the critics, audience, and government, with wich I was in contact battle борьба while I ran the theatre. A year after my resignation уход в отставку from the post, I sat down and wrote the script сценарий in five days. The picture is just a game. S.: To puzzle the audience? B.: Exactly. I liked writng it very much and even more making it. We had a lot of fun while we were shooting снимаем. My purpose was just to amuse myself and the audience. Do you understand what I mean?

S.: I understand, but certain members of the audience can‟t resist воздержаться poining out that Bergman is sending messages, he thinks, but what are they and why? B.: You must realize понимать– this is very important! – I never ask people to understand what I have made. Stravinsky once said, “ I have never understood a piece of music in my life. I always only feel.” S.: But Stravinsky was a composer. By its nature, music is nondiscursive нелогический ; we don‟t have to understand it. Films, plays, poems, novels, all make propositions утверждение or observations, embody реализовывать, воплощать ideas or beliefs and we go to these formsB.: But you must understand that your view is distorted искажённый. You belong to a small minority that tries to understand. I never try to understand. Music, films, plays always work directly on the emotions. S.: I must disagree. I‟m afraid I didn‟t make myself clear – B.: I must tell you before we go on to more complicated things: I make my pictures for use! They are made to put me in contact with other human beings существами. My impulse has nothing to do with intellect or symbolism: it has only to do with dreams and longing стремление, with hope and desire, with passion. S.: Does it bother you when critics interpret you through these items пункт, вопрос? B.: Not at all. And let me tell you, I learn more from critics who honestly criticize my pictures than form those who are devout приверженцы. And they influence me. They help me change things. You know that actors often change a film, for better or worse. S.: May I ask you how “The Touch” differs from the one you intended? B.: I intended to paint a portrait of any ordinary woman, for whom everything around was a reflection. Bibi Anderson is a close friend of mine – a lovely and extremely talanted actress. She is totally oriented towards reality, always needing motives for what she does. I admire her and love her. But she changed the film. What Bibi Anderson did made the film more comprehensible for

ordinary people and more immediately непосредственно powerful. I agreed with all her changes. S.: You use music less and less in your films. Why? B.: Because I think that film itself is music, and I can‟t put music in music. S.: If you could have shot снимать all your films in colour, would you have? B.: No. Because it‟s more fascinating to shoot in black and white and force people to imagine the colours. S.: Do you work in colour now – to any degree – because you feel that the audience demands требовать it? B.: No. I like it. At the beginning, it was painful тяжело, but now I like it. S.: Why do you use so much dialogue in your films? B.: Because human communication occurs through words. I tried once to eliminate language, in “The silence”, and I feel that picture is excessive чрезмерный. S.: It‟s too abstract. B.: Yes. S.: Some people have criticized your films for being too theatrical – particularly – the early ones. How do you answer this charge издержки? B.: I‟m a director – S.: But aren‟t the two forms different? B.: Completely. In my earlier pictures, it was very difficult for me to go from directing in the theatre to directing films. I had always felt technically crippled ущербный– insecure ненадёжный with the crew, the cameras, the sound equipment – everything. Sometimes a film succeeded, but I never got what I wanted to get. But in “summer Interlude”, I suddenly felt that I knew my profession. S.: Do you have any idea why?

B.: I don‟t know, but for heaven‟s sake a day must always come along when finally one succeeds in understanding his profession! I‟m so impressed by young derectors now who know how to make a film from the first moment. S.: But they have nothing to say. (Bergman laughs.)

Chapter 8 (Extract) Each Friday morning the whole school spent the pre-recess предканикулярный period in writing their Weekly Review. This was one of the old Man‟s pet scemes проект: and one about which he would brook no interference не терпеть вмешательства. Each child would review the events of his school week in his own words, in his own way; he was free to comment, to criticise, to agree or disagree, with any person, subject or method, as long as it was in some way associated with the school. No one and nothing was sacred священный, from the Headmaster down, and the child, moreover более того, was safe from any form of reprisal расправы. “Look at this way,” Mr. Florian said. “It is of advantage преимущество to both pupils and teacher. If a child wants to write about something which matters to him, he will take some pains усилия to set it down изложить письменно as carefully and with as much detail as possible: that must in some way improve улучшать his written English in terms of spelling, construction and style. Week by week we are able, through his riview, to follow and observe his progress in such things. As for the teachers, we soon get a pretty good idea what the children think of us and whether or так или иначе not we are getting close to them†You will discover that these children are reasonably достаточноfair справедливый, посредственный, even when they comment on us. If we are careless about our clothing, manners or person they will soon notice it, and it would be pointless бессмысленно to be angry with them for pointing such things out указывать. Finally, from the reviews, the sensible teacer will observe the trend тенденцию, курс, направление of individual and collective interests and plan his work accordingly.” On the first Friday of my association with the class I was anxious озабочен to discover what sort of figure производимое впечатление I cut in front of them, and what kind of comment they would make about me. I read through some of the reviews at lunch-time, and must admit признать to a mixture of relief

облегчение and disappointment разочарование at discovering that, apart from mentioning упоминание they had a new “blackie” teacher, very little attention

was given to me† It occurred приходить на ум to me that they probably imagined I would be as transient временный as my many predecessors , and therefore поэтому saw no point in wasting either time or effort in writing about me. But if I had made so little impression on them, it must be my own fault, I decided. It was up причина to me to find some way to get through справиться to them. Thereafter после этого, соответственно I tried very hard to be a successful teacher with my class, but somehow так или иначе, as day followed day in painful мучительный, тягосный procession караван, I realized понять that I was not making the grade добиваюсь успеха. I bought and read books on the psychology of teaching in an effort to discover some way of providing обеспечивать the children with the sort of intellectual challenge задача, проблема to which they would respond реагировать, but the suggested methods somehow did non meet сорикасаться my particular need, and just did not work. It was as if I were trying to reach the children through a thick pane of glass оконное стекло, so remote труднодоступный and uninterested they seemed. Looking back, I realize that in fact I passed through three phases in my relationship with them. The first was the silent treatment, and during that time, for my first few weeks, they would do any task I set them without question or protest, but equally without interest or enthusiasm; and if their interest was not required for the task in front of them would sit and stare at me with the same careful patient attention a birdwatcher наблюдатель птиц devotes посвящать, отдавать to the rare feathered пернатый visitor†

I took great pains не жалел сил with the planning of my lessons, using illustrations from the familiar things of their own background окружение. I created various problems within the domestic framework, and tried to encourage their participation, but it was as though как если бы there were a conspiracy заговор of indifference, and my attempts попытки at informality естественность, неофициальность fell pitifully плачевно flat провалиться.

Gradually they moved on to the second and more annoying phase of their campaign, the “noisy” treatment. It‟s true to say that all of them did not actively join in this but those who did not were obviously in same symphaty with those who did. During a lesson, especially one in wich it was necessary for me to read or spak to them, someone would lift the lid of a desk and then let it fall with a loud bang громкий удар; the culprit виновник would merely только sit and look at me with wide innocent eyes as if it were an accident. They knew as well as I did that there was nothing I could do about it, and I bore перенести it with as much show of aplomb уверенность в себе as could manage. One or two such interruptions during a lesson were usually enough to destroy its planned continuity целостность† So I felt angry and frustrated растроенный when they rudely нагло interrupted that which was being done purely for their own benefit польза. One morning I was reading to them some simple poetry. Just when I thought I had inveigled вовлечь them into active interest one of the girls, Monica Page, let the top of the desk fall; the noise seemed to reverberate раскатисто раздаваться in every part of my being and I felt a sudden burning anger. I looked at her some moments before daring отважиться to open my mouth; she returned my gaze, then casually случайно remarked to the class at large целиком, пространно : “The bleeding проклятый thing won‟t stay up” не ложиться спать. It was all rather deliberate умышленный, заранее спланированный, the noisy interruption and the crude грубый remark, and it heralded возвестило the third stage of their conduct. From then on с тех пор the words “bloody” or “bleeding” were hardly ever едва ли когда-нибудь absent from отсутствовали any remark they made to one another especilally in the classroom. They would call out вызыватьto each other on any silly pretext отговорка, предлог and refer обращаться to the “bleeding” this or that то или другое, and always in a voice loud enough for my ears. One day during an arithmetic period I played right into their hands. I was so overcome by anger and disgust недовольство that I completely lost my temper выйти из себя† I went upstairs and sat in the library, the only place where I could be alone for a little while. I felt sick боль at heart, because it seemed that this latest act, above all others, was intended to display their utter абсолютное disrespect for me. They seemed to have no sense of decency приличия, these children; everythying they

said or did was coloured by an ugly мерзкий viciousness злоба, as if their minds were forever rooting укоренены after filth грязь, мерзость. “Why, oh why,” I asked myself, “did they behave like that?

Text four(p.109) The fun they had By I. Asimov A professor of biochemistry and science writer, I. Asimov is well-known as science fiction выдумка, худ. Литература writer as well. In 1957 he won the Edison Foundation award for building Blocks of the Universe, and in 1960 the Howard W. Blakeslee award for The Living River in which he analysed the chemical composition of the blood and related it to other manifestations проявление in our universe. He is also the author of The Intelligent Man‟s Guide to Sciences, an encyclopedic work covering in brief essay all of science for the layman непрофессионал. Besides all this, Lucky Stars and The Pirates of the Asteroids (1953), The Kingdom of the Sun (1960), The End of eternity (1962) are only a few science fiction books that came from under his pen. Margie even wrote about it that night in her diary. On the page headed May 17, 2157,she wrote, “Today Tommy found a real book!” It was a very old book. Margie‟s grandfather once said that when he was a little boy his grandfather told him that there was a time when all stories were printed on paper. They turned the pages, which were yellow and crinkly сморщенный, and it was awfully funny to read words that stood still instead of moving the way they were supposed to – on a screen, you know. And then, when they turned back to the page before, it has been the same words on it that it had been when they read it the first time. “Gee, вот здорово” said Tommy, “what a waste расточительство. When you‟re through прекратить, покончить with the book, you just throw it away, I gess.

Our television screen must have had a million books on and it‟s good for plenty more. I wouldn‟t throw it away. “Same with mine,” said Margie. She was eleven and hadn‟t seen as many telebooks as Tommy had. He was thirteen. She said, “Where did you find it?” “In my house.” He pointed without looking, because he was busy reading. “In the attic мансарда, чердак.” “What‟s about?” “School.” Margie was scornful презрительный, насмешливый. “School? What‟s there to write about school? I hate school.” Margie always hated school, but now she hated it more than ever. The mechanical teacher had been giving her test after test in geography and she had been doing worse and worse until her mother had shaken her head sorrowfully печально and sent for the County округ Inspector. He was a round little man with a red face and a whole box of tools, with dials циферблат and wires провод.He smiled at Margie and gave her an apple, then took the teacher apart. Margie had hoped he wouldn‟t know how to put it together again, but he knew all right, and, after an hour or so, there it was again, large and black and ugly, with a big screen on wich all the lessons were shown and the questions were asked. That wasn‟t so bad. The part Margie hated most was the slot отверстие where she had to put homework and test papers. She always had to write them out in a punch code код перфокарты they made her calculated the mark знак in no time моментально. The inspector has smiled after he was finished and patted Margie‟s head. He said to her mather, “It‟s not the little girl‟s fault, Mrs. Jones, I think the geography sector was geared зацеплятьс, приводить в движение a little too quick. Those things happen sometimes. I‟ve slowed it up сокращать to an average ten year level. Actually, the overall общий pattern of her progress is quite satisfactory.” And he patted Margie‟s head again.

Margie was disappointed разочарована, She had been hoping they would take away for nearly a month because the history sector had blanked out заперт, погашен, очищен completely. So she said to Tommy. “Why would anyone write about school?” Tommy looked at her with very superior eyes. “Because it‟s not our kind of cshool, stupid. This is the old kind of school that they had hundreds and hundreds years ago.” He added loftily надменно, pronouncing the word carefully тщательно, “Centuries ago.” Margie was hurt задета. “Well, I don‟t know what kind of school they had all that time ago.” She read the book over his shoulder for a while, then said, “Anyway, they had a teacher.” “Sure, they had a teacher, but it wasn‟t a regular teacher. It was a man.” “A man? How could a man be a teacher?” “Well, he just told the boys and girls things and gave them homework and asked them questions.” “A man isn‟t smart enough.” “Sure he is. My father knows as much as my teacher.” “He can‟t. A man can‟t know as much as a teacher.” “He knows almost as much, I betcha держу пари.” Margie wasn‟t prepared to dispute that.. She said. “I wouldn‟t want a strange man in my house to teach me.” Tommy screamed with laughter, “You don‟t know much, Margie. The teachers didn‟t live in the house. They had a special building and all the kids went there.” “And all the kids learned the same things.” “Sure, if they were the same age.” “But my mother says a teacher has to be adjusted отрегулирован to fit the mind of each boy and girl it teaches and that each kid has to be tought differently.”

“Just the same they didn‟t do it that way then. If you don‟t like it, you don‟t have to read the book.” “I didn‟t say I didn‟t like it,” Margie said quickly. She wanted to read about those funny schools. They weren‟t even half-finished, when Margie‟s mother called, “Margie! School!” Marglie looked up. “Not yet, Mamma.” “Now!” said Mrs. Jones. “ And it‟s probably time for Tommy, too.” Margie said to Tommy, “Can I read the book some more with you after school?” “Maybe,” he said nonchalantly небрежно, бесстрастно. He walked away, whistling, the dusty old book tucked спрятаться beneath под his arm. Margie went into the schoolroom. It was right next to her bedroom and the mechanical teacher was on был на месте and waiting for her. It was always on at the same time every day, except Saturday and Sunday, because her mother said little girls learned better if they learned at regular hours. The screen lit up зажечься, and it said: “Today‟s arithmetic lesson is on the addition of proper fractions правильных дробей. Please insert yesterday‟s homewework in the proper нужный slot.” Margie did so with a sigh. She was thinking about the old schools they had when her grandfather‟s neighbourhood соседи came laughing and shouting in the schoolyard, sitting together in schoolroom, going home together at the end of the day. They learned the same things, so they could help one another on the homework and talk about it. And the teachers were people† The mechanical teacher was flashing отражать on the screen: “When we add the fractions ½ and ¼ - “Marglie was thinking about how the kids must have loved it in the old days. She was thinking about the fun they had. Vocabulary notes.

Text five(p.140) Art for heart‟s sake By R. Goldberg

Reuben Lucius Goldberg (1883-1970), an American sculptor, cartoonist and writer was born in San Francisco. After graduating from the University of California in 1904 he worked as a cartoonist карикатурист for a number of newspapers and magazines. He produced several series of cartoons all of which were highly popular. Among his best works are Ia there a Doctoer in the House? (1929), Rube Goldberg‟s Guide to Europe (1954) and I Made My Bed (1960). “Here, take your pineapple juce,” gently persuated уговаривать Koppel, the male nurse фельдшер, брат милосердия. “Nope Ellsworth.
! нет” grunted ворчать, бормотать, брюзжать Collis P.

“But it‟s good for you, sir.” “Nope!” “It‟s doctor‟s orders.” “Nope!” Koppel heard the front door bell and was glad to live the room. He found Doctor Caswell in the hall downstairs.” I can‟t do a thing with him,” he told the doctor. He won‟t take his pineapple juice. He doesn‟t want me to read to him. He hates the radio. He doesn‟t like anything!”

Doctor Caswell received the information with his usual professional calm. He had done some constructive thinking since his last visit. This was no ordinary case. The old gentleman was in pretty good shape for a man of seventy-six. But he had to be kept from buying things. He had suffered his last heart attack after his disastrous гибельный, пагубный purchase покупка of that jerkwater маленький, незначительный railroad out in Iowa !. All his purchases of recent years had to be liquidated at a great sacrifice жертва both to his health and his pocketbook записная книжка. The doctor drew up вытянуться a chair and sat down close to the old man. “I‟ve got a proposition for you,” he said quietly. Old Ellsworth looked suspiciously over his spectacles. “How‟d you like to take up заниматься art?” The doctor had his stethoscope ready in case the abruptness внезапность of the suggestion proved too much for the patient‟s heart. But the old gentleman‟s answer was a vigorous сильный, энергичный“Rot!” вздор “I don‟t mean seriously,” said the doctor, relieved облегчѐнный that disaster беда had been averted. предотвращён“Just fool around маятся дурью with chalk and crayons “Bosh!” ерунда “All right.‟ The doctor stood up. “I just suggested it, that‟s all.” “But, Caswell, how do I start playing with the chalk – that is, if I‟m foolish enough to start?” “I‟ve thought of that, too. I can get a student from one of the art schools to come here once a week and show you.” Doctor Caswell went to his friend, Judson Livingston, head of the Atlantic Art Institute, and explained the situation. Livingston had just the young man – Franc Swain, eighteen years old and a promising student. He needed the money. Ran запуск an elevator лифт at night to play tuition обучение. How much he get? Five dollars a visit. Fine. пастель, мелки . It‟ll be fun.”

Next afternoon young Swain was shown into the big living room. Collis P. Ellsworth looked at him appraisingly оценивающе. “Sir, I‟m not an artist yet,” Answered the young man. “Umph?” гм Swain arranged разместить some paper and crayons мелки on the table. “Let‟s try and draw that vase over there on the mantelpiece каминная полка,” he suggested. “Try it, Mister Ellsworth, please.” “Umph!” The old man took a piece of crayon in a shaky hand and made a scrawl каракули. He made another scrawl and connected the two with a couple of crude грубый lines. “There it is, young man, “ he snapped щелкнуть, треснуть with a grunt ворчание, хрюкание of satisfaction. “Such foolishness. Poppycock! ерунда” Frank Swain was patient. He needed the five dollars. „If you want to draw you will have to look at what you‟re drawing, sir.”Old Ellsworth squinted покоситься, взглянуть искоса and looked. “By gum чёрт возьми, it‟s kinda (=kind a) pretty прелестная вещь, I never noticed it before.” When the art student came the following week there was a drawing on the table that had a slight resemblance to the vase. The wrinkles морщины deepened at the corners of the old gentlemen‟s eyes as he asked elfishly проказливо, “Well, what do you think of it?” “Not bad, sir,” answered Swain. “But it‟s a bit lopsided кривобокий.” “By gum чёрт возьми,” Old Ellsworth chuckled посмеиваться.”I see. The halves don‟t math.” He added a few lines with a palsied трясущийся hand and colored the open spaces blue like a child playing with a picture book. Then he looked towards the door. “Listen, young man,” he whispered, “I want to ask you something before old pineapple juice comes back.” “Yes, sir,” responded Swain respectively соответственно. “I was thinking could you spare the time to come twice a week or perhaps three times?”

“Sure, Mister Ellsworth.” “Good. Let‟s make it Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Four o‟clock.” As the weeks went by Swain‟s visits grew more frequent. He brought the old man a box of water-colors and some tubes тюбикof oils. When Doctor Caswell called Ellsworth would talk about the graceful изящный lines of the andirons железная подставка для дров в камине . He would dwell жить, подробно задерживаться on the rich variety of color in a bowl of fruit. He proudly displayed the variegated разнообразный, неоднородный, разноцветный smears мазок of paint on his heavy silk dressing gown. He would not allow his valet слуга to send it to the cleaner‟s. He wanted to show the doctor how hard he‟d been working. The treatment was working perfectly. No more trips поездка downtown деловой район города to become involved in purchases покупка of enterprises предпринимательство, предприятие of doubtful solvency кредито/платёжеспособность.

The doctor thought it safe to allow Ellsworth to visit the Metropolitan, the Museum of Modern Art and other exhibits with Swain. An entirely вполне, всецело new world opened up открыть its charming mysteries. The old man displayed an insatiable ненасытный, жадный curiosity about the galleries and the painters who exhibited in them. How were the galleries run работать? Who selected the canvases полотно for the exhibitions? An idea was forming in his brain. When the late spring sun began to cloak покрывать the fields and gardens with color, Ellsworth executed осуществлять, исполнять a god-awful smudge мазня wich he called “Trees Dressed in White”. Then he made a starting

announcement. He was going to exhibit in the Summer show at the Lathrop Gallery! For the Summer show at the Lathrop Gallery was the biggest art exhihibit of the year in quality, if not in size. The lifetime результат dream of every mature artist in the United States was a Lathrop prize. Upon this distinguished выдающийся, знаменитый, изысканный group Ellsworth was going to foist

всучить, навязать his “Trees Dressed in White”, which resembled a gob большой кусок of salad салат, всякая всячина dressing разряженный thrown violently up against the side of a house у дома!

“If the papers газета get hold of this получать, Mister Ellsworth will become a laughing-stock посмешище. We‟ve got to stop him,” groaned стонать Koppel. “No,” admonished предостерегать, советовать the doctor. “ We can‟t interfere with him now and take a chance of spoiling all the good work that we‟ve accomplished совершить.” To the utter astonishment of all three – and especially Swain – “Trees Dressed in White” was accepted for the Lathrop show. Fortunately, the painting hung in an inconspicuous неприметный place where it could not excite побуждать, вызывать any noticeable comment. Young Swain sneaked прокрадываться into the Gallery one afternoon and blushed to the top of his ears when he saw “Trees Dressed in White”, a loud, raucous беспорядочный splash всплеск, пятно on the

wall. As two giggling students хихикать stopped before the strange anomaly Swain fled убегать, изчезать in terror. He could not bear to hear what they had to say. During the course of the exhibition on the old man kept on taking his lessons, seldom mentioning упоминая his entry вступление in the exhibit. He was unusually cheerful. Two days before ранее the close of the exhibition a special messenger рассыльный, курьер brought a long official-looking envelope to Mister Ellsworth while Swain, Koppel and the doctor were in the room. “Read it to me,” requested попросить the old man. “My eyes are tired from painting.” “It gives the Lathrop Gallery pleasure с большим удовольствием to announce that the First landscape Prize of $ 1,000 has been awarded to Collis P. Ellsworth for his painting, “Trees Dressed in White”. Swain and Koppel uttered издать звук a series of inarticulate нечленораздельный gurgles

булькающий звук. Doctor Caswell,

exercising his professional self control with a supreme effort, said: “Congratulations, Mister Ellsworth. Fine, fine† See, see† Of course, I didn‟t expect such great news. But, but – well, now, you‟ll have to admit that art is much more satisfying than business.” “Art‟s nothing,” snapped резко сказать the old man. “I bought the Lathrop Gallery last month.” Vocabulary notes. relieve vt – 1) облегчать, уменьшать, освобождать (to relieve pain, anxiety) 2) сменять (to relieve a sentry – сменить часового) 3) брать, взять у кого-либо что-либо (to relieve smb. of smth.) to relieve one‟s feelings – дать выход чувствам to feel relieved – почувствовать облегчение to ease – облегчить (to ease smb. pain, anxiety) relief – облегчение, утешение, помощь, успокоение. to sigh with relief – вздохнуть с облегчением to give(bring) relief(no relief, some relief) to smb. – давать(приносить) облегчение(помощь, утешение) кому-либо comfort – комфорт, утешение, довольство art – 1) искусство (a work of art – произведение искусства, artlover - , art critic – искусствовед, genuine art – истинное искусство, pretence of art - , graphic art – графика, applied art – прикладное искусство, folk art – народное искусство, the Fine arts - Изящные Искусства )2) знание, наука, ремесло 3) умение, мастерство. artist – мастер, художник (professional artist – профессиональный художник, amateur artist – художник-любитель) artistic – профессиональный, художественный, артистический (artistic skill – художественное мастерство, artistic taste, artistic person) artificial – 1) искусственный (artificial flowers, light, silk – искусственные цветы, свет, шелк) 2) draw vt – 1) передвигать, пододвигать (to draw a chair) 2) вытаскивать, вытягивать (to draw out) 3) вызывать на разговор, на откровенность (to draw out) 4) привлекать 5) черпать, выводить (заключение) 6) рисовать (to draw well, to draw in pencil, to draw a bunch of flowers) 7) подходить приближаться (A concert season is drawing to end) draw n – (the play is a draw – пьеса имеет успех) drawing – рисование, рисунок

Another six years in a rocky island lost in the ocean the life of the man went through his glory had been still gleaming. It was a protracted for years agony of the prisoner, who was doomed to lingering death. The British Government, of whom generosity Napoleon counted on, came short. They put their prisoner into severe and humiliating conditions of a petty-minded captious meddling spoiled the last years of his life. In these long days of ordeals and misfortune he displayed courage and strength of mind which made forget many of his previous crimes.

From hundred and fifty – one hundred and eighty miles years voices of the past epoch come to us more subduedly. But a historian, refreshing the picture of the very far-off times and its heroes, is already free from any partiality and prejudicialness of the past epoch; the historical events and historical characters, proved by the strong measures of time, find their actual size, history assigns everyone his place. Napoleon Buonaparte from this long distance appears in all his inconsistency. He is apprehended first of all as a son of his time - a critical epoch, the epoch of transformation from the old feudal world to the new bourgeois society coming in the stead of. His name associates with dimensionless ambition, despotic rule, cruel bloody battles, sateless thirst of conquests. For sure, it would be right to say that Napoleon Buonaparte was one of the most remakable representative of bourgeoisie then it was still young bold ascending classe , that he personified the most completely all its virtues and its proper even at the early stage shortcomings. As long as there was more elements of progressive in Napoleon‟s action, good fortune, wins accompanied him.And when Napoleonic Wars turned into pure aggressive, imperialistic wars which brought enslavement and oppression to European nations, then neither none of Napoleon‟s personal gifts nor enormous efforts he made already couldn‟t bring him the victory. He was coming with immenence to the ruin of his empire and to his own failure. His ups and downs were consequent enaugh. Napoleon Buonaparte was a son of his epoch an impressed in his character features of his age. All following figures of bourgeoisie who was pretending to the Napoleon‟s role, reflecting historical evolution of the class representatives of which they were, became petty, degenerated into a bad mock or caricature of image they tried to imitate. However it is impossible to strike out of the annals the Napoleon Buonaparte‟s name. In nineteen sixty-eight his two hundreth anniversary was celebrated: hundreds of books and articles, congresses, conferences and television programmes and discutions again.The public interest for man, general, statesman of remote times is still great. What is the matter of issue? Some disparage and curse Buonaparte, others praise, the thirds try to find an explanation of inconsistency of his track, so much different from the others. However, how much wouldn‟t differ the opinions, everyone coincides that that was a man of an unique, striking destiny, which was stamped on the memory of generations.

By Somerset Maugham William Somerset Maugham (1874-1966), a well-known English novelist писатель-романист, short-story writer, playwright драматург and essayist очеркист, was the son of a British diplomat. He was educated at King‟s School in Canterbury , studied painting in Paris, went to Heidelberg University in Germany and studied to be a doctor at St. Thomas Hospital in England. Although Somerset Maugham did not denounce обвинять, осуждать the contemporary social order, he was critical of the morals, the narrow-mindedness недалѐкость and him hypocrisy лицемерие, притворство of bourgeois society. It was his autobiographical novel Of Human Bondage (1951) and the novel The Moon and Sixpence (1919) based on the life of the French artist Paul Gauguin , that won fame. Somerset Maugham was also a master of the shirt story. Somerset Maugham‟s style of writing is clear and precise. He does not impose обманывать his views on the reader. He puts a question and leaves it to the

reader to answer it. When criticizing something he sounds rather amused позабавленный than otherwise иначе. It‟s a dangerous thing to order the lives of others and I have often wondered at the self-confidence of the politicians, reformers and suchlike тому подобные люди who are prepared to force upon their fellows measures мерило that must alter менять, изменять their manners, habits, and points of view. I have always hesitated колебаться to give advice, for how can one advise another how to act unless one knows that other that other as well as one knows himself? Heaven knows, I know little enough of myself: I know nothing of others. We can only guess at the thoughts and emotions of our neighbours. Each one of us is a prisoner in a solitary уединѐнный tower and he communicates with the other prisoners, who form mankind, by conventional обычный, шаблонный signs that have not quite вполне, довольно the same meaning for them as for himself. And life, unfortunately, is something that you can lead but once; mistakes are often irreparable непоправимый and who am I that I should tell this one and that how he should lead it? Life is difficult business and I have found it hard enough to make my own a complete and rounded thing; I have not been tempted искушѐнный to teach my neighbor what he should do with his. But there are men who flounder двигаться с трудом, барахтаться, путаться в словах at the journey‟s start, the way before them, is confused and hazardous рискованный, опасный, and on occasion, however unwillingly неохотно, I have been forced to point the finger of fate. Sometimes men have said to me, what shall I do with my life? And I have seen myself for a moment wrapped покрытый, обѐрнутый in the dark cloak покров, плащ, мантия of Destiny. Once I know that I advised well. I was a young man, and I lived in a modest apartment in London near Victoria Station. Late one afternoon, when I was beginning to think that I had worked enough for that day, I heard a ring at the bell. I opened the door to a total stranger. He asked me my name; I told him. He asked if he might come in. “Certainly.” I led him into my sitting-room and begged him to sit down. He seemed a trifle немного embarrassed. I offered him a cigarette and he had some difficulty in lighting it without letting go off отделаться, сбежать his hat. When he had satisfactorily achieved this feat подвиг I asked him if I should not put it on a chair for him. He quickly did this and while doing it dropped ронять his umbrella. “I hope you don‟t mind возражать my coming to see you like this,” he said. “My name is Stephens and I am a doctor. You‟re in the medical, I believe?”

“Yes, but I don‟t practice.” “No, I know. I‟ve just read a book of yours about Spain and I wanted to ask you about it.” “It‟s not a very good book, I‟m afraid.” “The fact remains that you know something about Spain and there‟s no one else I know who does. And I thought perhaps you wouldn‟t mind giving me some information.” “I shall be very glad.” He was silent for a moment. He reached out протянуть руку for his hat and holding it one hand absent-mindedly stroked поглаживать it with the other. I surmised предполагать that it gave him confidence уверенность. “I hope you won‟t think it very odd for a perfect stranger to talk to you like this.” He gave an apologetic извиняющийся laugh. “I‟m not going to tell you the story of my life.” When people say this to me I always know that is precisely what they are going to do. I do not mind. In fact I rather like it. “I was brought up by two old aunts. I‟ve never been anywhere. I‟ve never done anything. I‟ve been married for six years. I have no children. I‟m a medical officer at the Camberwell Infirmary лазарет. I can‟t stick зависать it anymore.” There was something very striking поразительный in the short, sharp sentences he used. They had a forcible веский, убедительный ring окружность. I had not given him more than a cursory беглый glance, but now I looked at with curiosity . He was a little man, thickset коренастый and stout плотный, of thirty perhaps, with a round red face from which shone small, dark and very bright eyes. His black hair was cropped обрезан close to a bullet -shaped пулевидный, округлый head. He was dressed in a blue suit a good deal the worse for wear хорощо пообносившийся. It was baggy мешковатый at the knees and the pockets bulged выдаваться, выпячиваться untidily неопрятно. “You know what the duties are of medical officer in an infirmary . One day is pretty much like another. And that‟s all I‟ve got to look forward to ожидать, надеяться for the rest of my life. Do you think it‟s worth it?” “It‟s a means of livelihood средства к жизни,” I answered. “Yes, I know. The money‟s pretty good.” “I don‟t exactly know why you‟ve come to me.‟ “Well, I wanted to know whether you thought there would be any chance for an English doctor in Spain?”

“Why Spain?” “I don‟t know. I just have fancy склонность, пристрастие for it.” “It‟s not like Carmen, you know.” “But there‟s sunshine there, and there‟s good wine, and there‟s colour, and there‟s air you can breathe. Let me say what I have to say straight out прямой, открытый. I heard by accident that there was no English doctor in Seville . Do you think I could earn a living there? Is it madness to give up бросить a good safe job for an uncertainty?” “What does your wife think about it?” “She‟s willing.” “It‟s a great risk.” “I know. But if you say take it, I will; if you say stay where you are, I‟ll stay.” He was looking at me intently внимательно with those bright dark eyes of his and I knew that he meant what he said. I reflected for a moment. “Your whole future is concerned иметь отношение: you must decide for yourself. But this I can tell you: if you don‟t want money but are content удовлетворяться to earn just to keep body and soul together сводить концы с концами, then go. For you will lead a wonderful life.” He left me, I thought about him for a day or two, and then forgot. The episode passed completely from my memory. Many years later, fifteen at least, I happened to be in Seville and having some trifling пустячный, незначительный indisposition недомогание asked the hotel porter whether there was an English doctor in the town. He said there was and gave me the address. I took a cab and as I drove up подъехать to the house a little fat man came out of it. He hesitated заколебаться when he caught sight увидеть, заметить of me. “Have you come to see me?” he said. “I‟m the English doctor.” I explained my errand поручение, командировка and he asked me to come in. He lived in an ordinary простой Spanish house, with a patio внутренний дворик, and his consulting room which led out выходить, сообщаться of it littered разбросанный в беспорядке with

papers, books, medical appliances, and lumber мебель. The sight of it would have startled

хлам, громоздкая

business and then I asked the doctor what his fee was. He shook his head and smiled. “There‟s no fee.” “Why on earth not?”

испугать a squeamish брезгливый, щепетильный, привередливый patient. We did our

“Don‟t you remember me? Why, I‟m here because of something you said to me. You changed my whole life for me. I‟m Stephens.” I had not the least notion понятие, идея what he was talking about. He reminded me of our interview деловое свидание, встреча, he repeated to me what we had said, and gradually понемногу, out of из, вне the night, a dim тусклый, неясный, матовый recollection воспоминание, память of the incident происшествие came back to me. “I was wondering if I‟d ever see you again,” he said, I wondering if ever I‟d have a chance of thanking you for all you‟ve done for me.” “It‟s been a success then?” I looked at him. He was very fat now and bald лысый, плешивый, but his eyes twinkled мерцать, мигать gaily and his fleshy толстый, мясистый, red face bore нести, иметь признаки an expression of perfect good-humour. The clothes he wore, terribly shabby потѐртый, обносившийся, жалкий they were, had been made obviously by a Spanish tailor and his hat was the wide-brimmed широкополый sombrero if the Spaniard. He looked to me as though he knew a good bottle of wine when he saw it. He had a dissipated рассеянный though хотя entirely исключительно, полностью sympathetic симпатичный, appearance. You might have hesitated не решиться to let him remove your appendix , but you could not have imagined a more delightful восхитительный, очаровательный creature to drink a glass of wine with. “Surely you were married?” I asked. “Yes. My wife didn‟t like Spain, she went back to Camberwell , she was more at home there.” “Oh, I‟m sorry for that.” His black eyes flashed a bacchanalian smile. He really had somewhat the look of a young Silenus . “Life is full of compensations,” he murmured. The words were hardly out of his mouth when a Spanish woman, no longer in her fist youth , but still boldly смело, нагло and voluptuously чувственно beautiful, appeared at the door. She spoke to him in Spanish, and I could not fail to perceive не мог не почувствовать that she was the mistress хозяйка дома of the house. As he stood at the door to let me out выпустить he said to me:

“You told me when last I saw you that if I came here I should earn just enough money to keep body and soul together, but that I should lead a wonderful life. Well, I want to tell you that you were right. Poor I have been and poor I shall always be, but by heaven ей-богу I‟ve enjoyed myself получить удовольствие.

(Extract) John Galsworthy (1867-1933), a prominent выдающийся English novelist, playwright драматург and short-story writer, came from an upper высший middle-class family. He was educated at Harrow and Oxford and was called to the Bar. His first novel (From the Four Winds) was published in 1897, but it was The Man of Property that won him fame. Among his numerous novels The Forsyte Saga and A Modern Comedy are the most prominent известный. They give a truthful picture of English bourgeois society at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. The Apple-Tree (1917) is one of the most popular long short stories written by John Galsworthy . On the first of May, after their last year together at college, Frank Ashurst and his friend Robert Garton were on a tramp. They had walked that day from Brent, intending to make Chagford but Ashrust‟s football knee had given out иссякать (о силах), and according to their map they had still some seven miles to go. They were sitting on a bank beside where a track тропа crossed около the road, встретиться, пересекаться alongside бок о бок a wood, resting давать покой knee and talking of the universe вселенной, as young men will желание. Both were over six feet, and thin as rails жердь, Ashurst pale, idealistic, full of absence рассеянный; Garton queer странный, чудаковатый, round-the–corner за углом, knotted узловатый, curly кудрявый, like some primeval beast. Both had a literary литературный bent наклонность; neither ни тот ни другой wore a hat. Ashurst‟s hair was smooth, pale, wavy волнистый and had a way иметь обыкновение of rising on either side of his brow , as if always being flung back откинуты назад; Garton‟s was a kind of dark unfathomed mop необъятная копна. They had not met a soul for miles.

By John Galsworthy

“My dear fellow,” Garton was saying, “pity‟s only an effect of self-consciousness сознание; it‟s a disease болезнь of the last five thousand years. The world was happier without.” Ashrust did not answer; he had plucked сорвать a blue floweret цветочек, and was twiddling вертеть it against the sky. A cuckoo кукование began calling from a thorn колючка tree. The sky, the flowers, the songs of birds! Robert was talking through his hat. And he said: “Well, let‟s go on, and find some farm where we can put up.” In uttering произнося those words he was conscious чувствовать of a girl coming down from the common just above them. She was outlined вырисовываться against the sky, carrying a basket, and you could see that sky through the crook изгиб of her arm. And Ashrust, who saw beauty without wondering how it could advantage благоприятствовать him, thought: “How pretty!” The wind, blowing her dark frieze грубая ворсистая шерстяная ткань (бобрик) skirt against her legs, lifted her battered изношенный peacock павлиний tam-o‟-shanter шотландский берет; her grayish сероватый blouse was worn and old, her shoes were split треснутый, her little hands rough and red, her neck browned. Her dark hair waved развеваться untidy неопрятно across her broad широкий forehead , her face was short, her upper lip short, showing a glint вспышка, яркий блеск of teeth, her brows were straight and dark, her lashes ресницы long and dark, her nose straight ; but her grey eyes were the wonder-dewy влажный as if opened for the first time that day. She looked at Ashurst- perhaps he struck her as strange, limping прихрамывающий along without a hat, with his large eyes on her, and his hair flung back откинутыми назад. He could not take off удалять, уничтожать what was not on his head, but put his hand in a salute, and said: “Can you tell us if there‟s a farm near here where we could stay the night? I‟ve gone lame охромел.” “There‟s only one farm near, sir.” She spoke without shyness, in a pretty, soft, crisp живой voice. “And where is that?” “Down here, sir.” “Oh! I think we would.” “Will you show us the way?” “Yes, sir.” He limped on, silent, and Garton took up the catechism ряд вопросов и ответов.

“Are you a Devonshire girl?” “No, sir.” “What then?” “From Wales .” “Ah, I thought you were a Celt , so it‟s not your farm?” “My aunt‟s, sir.” “And your uncle‟s?” “He is dead.” “Who farms it, then?” “My aunt, and my three cousins.” “But your uncle was a Devonshire man?” “Yes, sir.” “Have you lived here long?” “Seven years.” “And how d‟you like it after Wales ?” “I don‟t know, sir.” “I suppose you don‟t remember?” “Oh, yes! But it is different.” “I belive you!” Ashurst broke in suddenly: “How old are you?” “Seventeen, sir.” “And what‟s your name?” “Megan David.” “This is Robert Garton, and I am Frank Ashurst. We wanted to get on Chagford.” “It‟s a pity your leg is hurting you.” Ashurst smiled, and when he smiled his face was rather beautiful. Descending past мимо the narrow wood , they came on приближаться the farm suddenly- a long, low stone-built dwelling with casement створный оконный переплѐт windows. In a farmyard where pigs and fowls домашняя птица and an old mare кобыла were straying блуждать. A short steep-up остролистая grass hill куча behind was crowned увенчана with a few Scotch firs сосна, and in front впереди, an old orchard фруктовый сад of apple trees, just breaking into flower, stretched down тянуться до to a stream ручей, поток and a long wild meadow луг. A little boy with oblique косой dark eyes was shepherding a pig, and by the house door stood a woman, who came towards подошла them. The girl said:

“It is Mrs. Narracombe, my aunt,” “Mrs. Narracombe, my aunt” had a quick, dark eye, like a mother wild-duck‟s кряква, and something of the same snaky змеиный turn поворот about her neck. “We met your niece on the road,” said Ashurst, “she thought you might perhaps put us up приютить for the night.” Mrs. Narracombe, taking them in осматривая from head to heel, answered: “Well, I can, if you don‟t mind one room. Megan, get the spare запасной room ready, and a bowl of cream. You‟ll be wanting tea, I suppose.” Passing through a sort of porch крыльцо made by two yew тис trees and some flowering-currant смородина bushes, the girl disappeared into the house, her peacock tam-o‟-shanter шотландский берет bright athwart косо, поперѐк that rosy-pink and the dark green of the years. “Will you come into the parlour гостиная and rest your leg? You‟ll be from college, perhaps?” “We were, but we‟ve gone down понизились now.” The parlour, brick-floored с полом, настиланным кирпичом, with bare пустой table and shiny лоснящийся chairs and sofa stuffed with horsehair , seemed never to have been used, it was so terribly clean. Ashurst sat down at once on the sofa, holding his lame knee between his hands, and Mrs. Narracombe gazed at him† “Is there a stream where we could bathe?” “There‟s the strame at the bottom of the orchard, but sittin‟ down you‟ll not be covered !” “How deep?” “Well, it‟s about a foot and a half maybe.” “Oh! That‟ll do fine. Which way?” “Down the lane. Through через the second gate, on the right, an‟ the pool‟s прудок by the big apple tree that stands by itself стоять особняком. There‟s trout форель there, if you can tickle ловить руками them!” “They‟re more likely to tickle us!” Mrs. Narracombe smiled. “There‟ll be the tea ready when you come back.” The pool formed by the damming запруживание of a rock камень, had a sandy bottom; and the big apple tree, lowest in the orchard, grew so close that its boughs сук almost overhung выступать над the water; it was in leaf листва and all but in flower- its crimson тѐмно-красный, румянец buds почка just bursting. There was no room for

more than one at a time in that narrow bath, and Ashurst waited his turn, rubbing his knee and gazing at the wild meadow луг, all rocks and thorn колючка trees and field flowers, with a grove роща, лесок of beeches бук beyond вдали, raised up возвышаться on a flat плоский mound насыпь, курган. Every bough сук was swinging in the wind, every spring bird calling, and a slanting косой, наклонный sunlight dappled покрывал пятнами the grass. He thought of Theocritus, and the river Cherwell, of the moon, and the maiden девица with dewy влажный eyes, of so many things that he seemed to think of nothing; and he felt absurdly happy.

...Дія роману відбувається в 1915-1918 рр.. на італо-австрійському фронті. Американець Фредерік Генрі - лейтенант санітарних військ італійської армії (італійської - тому що США ще не вступили у війну, а Генрі пішов добровольцем). Перед наступом у містечку на плавнях, де стоять санітарні частини, - затишшя. Офіцери проводять час хто як вміє - п'ють, грають у більярд, ходять в публічний будинок і вганяють у фарбу полкового священика, обговорюючи при ньому різні інтимні речі. У розташований по сусідству англійська госпіталь приїжджає молода медсестра Кетрін Барклі, у якої у Франції загинув наречений. Вона шкодує, що не вийшла за нього заміж раніше, не подарувала йому хоч трохи щастя. За військам проноситься слух, що треба чекати швидкого настання. Треба терміново розбити перев'язувальний пункт для поранених. Австрійські частини знаходяться близько від італійців - на іншій стороні річки. Генрі скрашує напруга очікування залицянням за Кетрін, хоча його бентежать деякі дивацтва її поведінки. Спочатку після спроби її поцілувати він отримує ляпаса, потім дівчина сама цілує його, схвильовано питаючи, чи завжди він буде добрий до неї. Генрі не виключає, що вона злегка божевільна, але дівчина дуже гарна, і зустрічатися з нею краще, ніж проводити вечори в офіцерському публічному домі. На чергове побачення Генрі приходить грунтовно п'яним і до того ж сильно спізнюється - втім, побачення не відбудеться: Кетрін не зовсім здорова.

...The Chivalrous Ideal and Courtly love in Medieval England Dobrea Andrada-Cristina Anul III Engleză-Japoneză As contoured by the pages of time and history, each and every Era of our evolutionary process has offered the next one the privilege of witnessing a fascinating world, jewelled in magnificent ideals and a specific behaviour, beautiful even in its flaws. Among these, a haunting and mesmerizing Era captures the thought of literary critics – the Medieval Period. A period marked by powerful beliefs, conflict and self-knowledge, and inhabited by a spirit torn between Christianity and paganism, between virtue and sin, between light and utter darkness. An Era portraying a country trying to adapt to drastic changes brought on by the Norman Conquest of 1066, a country fighting to establish its own history in order to gain independence. A Period of knights and ladies, of valour and good faith, which gives life to some of the highest ideals mankind has ever known. It has introduced us to concepts such as chivalry and courtly love, pure expressions of spiritual essence. Of these ideals poets and authors wrote with lively passion, embroidering them in poems such as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, or The Wife of Bath. Although its poet remains unknown, the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight remains instilled in our minds as one of the prime examples of chivalry, Gawain representing the chivalrous ideal of the period. His story begins at New Year, in a court......

Sir Rupert

...Oral Presentation on Sir Rupert ‘King Swallow’ Philo By Shenez Hall Sir Rupert Philo known to many as ‘King Swallow’ was born on the 14th February, 1942 in the village of Willikies situated in the Parish of St. Phillip right here in this beautiful nation of Antigua. From birth he was destined to be a singer. Nurtured by church and encouraged by friends, He began competing in the calypso art form, which is and will always be an important part of our ancestral heritage, in 1961. One by one his songs became great hits as he brought music, song and dance to Antigua and even further the Caribbean by relying upon a calypso that lives on today. Swallow’s philosophical and enlightened outlook was expressed in One Love One Destiny, Dawn of a New Day, Man To Man, We Marching and a plethora of other songs which were written by him. He was as good a writer as he was a thinker and singer. Swallow’s calypso also broke through a barrier by making calypso conquerable . He loved the calypso art form and he mastered it. Not surprisingly, he penned other calypsos that were intended solely to entertain and to enable dancing.  He also manifested strong messages in his songs including the unfairness of mistreatment as well as historical messages. He was able to connect on a deep and somewhat emotional level through his music to the many listeners. In multiple ways, Swallow created appeal for his music by moving it across the spectrum, capturing thoughtfulness and playfulness in their......

To Sir with Love Summary

...In the dining hall, Mr. Braithwaite observes the students having dinner. It is a very organized affair, with the students seated in groups of eight. Two students are assigned to be the servers for the day, and perform their duties quickly and efficiently. When the meal is over, the students are allowed to use the hall for an informal mid-day dance session, and Mr. Braithwaite, who passes through the dancers with Miss Blanchard on his way to meet with the headmaster, is impressed with their skill and a little discomfitted with the earthy suggestiveness in their movements. Mr. Florian wastes no time in getting to the point when Mr. Braithwaite comes into his office. In answer to the headmaster's query about if he would like the job, Mr. Braithwaite responds, "I'll have a shot at it." Pleased, Mr. Florian outlines his policy for the school. He says that the majority of the students have had problems with authority in the past and might be classified as "difficult," but he believes that authority based on fear is bound to fail. Mr. Florian points out that the students, for the most part, come from an environment of poverty, and thus do not show much interest in abstract learning. The goal of the school is to establish an atmosphere of disciplined freedom in which the students will learn to speak up for themselves and become prepared to take their places in the working world. Mr. Braithwaite is at first irritated that Mr. Florian is making such a big issue of the students'......

...In this factsheet: The Facts on Tuberculosis Causes of Tuberculosis Symptoms and Complications of Tuberculosis Diagnosing Tuberculosis Treating and Preventing Tuberculosis The Facts on Tuberculosis Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most common infections in the world. About 2 billion people are infected with TB and nearly 3 million people are killed by it each year. In Canada, there are about 1,600 new cases of TB every year. The bacterium that causes TB is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Someone can become infected and yet not have any symptoms of the active disease - this is called inactive TB. For someone with a healthy immune system, there's only a 10% lifetime chance of the TB bacteria reactivating and causing the active symptoms of TB. If the immune system has been weakened because of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) or other illnesses, the risk of moving from an inactive infection to an active symptomatic disease increases to 10% per year. Babies, preschool children, and seniors are also at greater risk due to weaker immune systems Causes of Tuberculosis Only people who have active TB infections can spread the TB bacteria. Coughing, sneezing, even talking can release the bacteria into the surrounding air, and people breathing this air can then become infected. This is more likely to happen if you're living in close quarters with someone who has TB or if a room isn't well ventilated. Once a person is infected, the bacteria will settle in......

To Sir, with Love

...Dr. Edward Ricardo Braithwaite's story, " To   Sir ,  with   love " is a story about a teacher who begins teaching at a reform school in London. The author bases the main plot of the story on his own life when he was a teacher in a rough section of London. The plot and characters are believable throughout the story, their actions show them as normal students who rebel for different reasons, much like students do in the United States today. Braithwaite kept the story believable and interesting. The students at the reform school had been kicked out of their other schools due to behavior. Most of the students were from broken homes. They either only had one parent or none at all.  The narration here is rather simple and going from the point of view of the teacher, the text is rather easy to understand and feel. The text can be logically divided into a two parts. The key in the first part of the text is rather dry and unemotional. From the very beginning of the extract we see the description of the Friday morning, the “pre-recess” period. The author gives the headmaster a nickname – Old man. To describe the principal’s program our narrator uses such metaphor as “pet scheme”. From his next words we see the description of this “scheme” as a program in which “Each child would review the events of his school week in his own words, in his own way; he was free to comment, to criticise, to agree or disagree, with any person, subject or method”. From his next words can be seen a little......

The IE verb-stem had the following structure: consonant-vowel-consonant. The sounding of the vowel in the root was dependent on the conditions of the stress falling upon it. This vowel-variation, termed Ablaut, was primarily a phonetic process in IE. In Germanic languages it was widely employed as a grammatical means.
