Shakespeare's 446th Birthday at the Folger

The Bard's Bash

Shakespeare's Birthday Open House

http://www.folger.edu/Content/Whats-On/Shakespeares-Birthday/

Shakespeare mentions "revels" 32 times in his plays. We think he'd be happy to join the music, building and grounds tours, entertainment, cake and other Elizabethan-themed activities at the annual Shakespeare's Birthday Open House at the Folger. If you can't celebrate in Washington, DC, groove like Shakespeare with a party playlist of music inspired by the Bard.

The festive theme continues as scholar Jonathan Bate discusses Epicurean influences in Shakespeare's plays in the annual birthday lecture, "The Good Life in Shakespeare."

Birthday Open House: Sun, Apr 25, noon to 4pm

Birthday Lecture: Mon, Apr 26, 8pm

Analysis Paper column on the yellow technical sheet.) 2.   Be sure to follow directions! There will be a lot less "mercy" for not doing correcting the error correctly this time.   3.  YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WRITE OUT THE WHOLE SENTENCE THAT HAS THE ERROR(S).  DO NOT USE ELLIPSES!  4.  Make sure you do not make ANY NEW ERRORS.  If two or more errors occur in the same sentence, follow the specific directions on how to correct them all together.  5.   TURN BUYBACKS IN ON TIME!  If buybacks are not turned in on your deadline, they are 1/2 credit the next day and no credit the day after!  5.  Read the blue BUYBACK hand-out CAREFULLY so you can ask any questions/clear up anything you don't understand about the buyback procedure.

OLES ONLY:

  1. Do pink Scansion & Sonnet quiz (If you didn't get one in class today and would like to print out a copy so you don't have to put your answers on notebook paper, click HERE) from Poetry Packet p. T-9 and as well as the Asimov "quiz" on p. T-10 and figure out the Sonnet Types (Shakespearean or Petrarchan) for Sonnets A, B, C on p. T-10.  The following tips/ info should help you.  TO DETERMINE RHYTHM PATTERN: Try  ITAD:  iambic (u/), trochaic (/u), anapestic (uu/), dactylic (/uu), pentameter.   TO DETERMINE RHYME:  You use small letters to designate the rhyming pattern.  For example, use an "a" to designate the last sound at the end of the first line.  Use a "b" to designate a different sound than sound "a."  Use a "c" to designate another different sound than sounds "a" or "b."  Use a "d" to designate another different sound at the end of a line than sounds "a" or "b" or "c," etc.)       

    Example:                                                  

    Small gnats that fly                                                       

    in hot July                                   a                                 

    and lodge in sleeping ears           b                       

    Can rouse therein                      c    

    A trumpet's din                          c                                      

    With Day of Judgment fears.       

    TO FIGURE OUT THE SONNETS ON THE RIGHT COLUMN OF PAGE T 10, YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS:  There are two types of sonnets: Shakespearean (consists of 3 quatrains rhyming like this abab,cdcd,efef and 1 couplet=gg) and Petrarchan octave=abbaabba sestet=cdecde or cddcdd or cdccdc or cdcdcd or? (lots of other options). Click HERE for about 30 sonnets with which to practice.  At the end of the practice sonnets, there's some excellent info. on the sonnet form.   If you would like to read a Shakespearean sonnet every day, click http://www.sonnetaday.com/ for the link.  You can also get a sonnet e-mailed to you every single day by registering at this site!  Ahhh!  Finally, here is an excellent website that gives an overview of the sonnet and all kinds of variations.  Click http://www.sonnets.org/basicforms.htm 

    FOR FUN:  Check out Alan Rickman reading Shakespeare's "Sonnet 130 My Mistress Eyes":

  2. Imagery and Tone Practice!

    You will do a variety of activities to practice using the concepts of imagery and tone.  Use the ivory hand-out you got in class today for these exercises. If you were absent, CLICK HERE

    1.  Imagery & Tone in chapter 3 of The Great Gatsby  ( see old ASSIGNMENT P) In your poetry packet, there is

  3. an excerpt (page E8-9) from chapter 3 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.   You have an IVORY COPY OF THIS FROM CLASS TODAY.  If you were absent, CLICK HERE  FOR THE GATSBY, THE STRANGER, AND ANOTHER FUN ASIMOV EXERCISE FROM THE POETRY PACKET.    WHAT TO DO:  Read the entire excerpt first.  As you read the excerpt quickly through, think about the mood (your emotional response) and the TONE (the author's attitude towards the topic/subject matter, the scene (the people, the atmosphere, etc.).  Jot down YOUR PERSONAL immediate response to TONE--positive, negative, neutral, indifferent?   Now it 's time to go back and justify/confirm your initial response.   On your copy of the excerpt, look for examples of  DIDLS (Diction, Imagery, Details, Language, Syntax ).  These are the poetic techniques Fitzgerald uses to establish his TONE.  Go back and read the excerpt again SLOWLY.  Concentrate on evidence for each of the DIDLS.  For DICTION, look for interesting/unusual/powerful word choices.  In the margins of the excerpt, JOT down some of those  DICTION examples and what they connote.  Now, especially concentrate on the images Fitzgerald uses to create a picture in the reader's mind of the scene.  Look for sensory images in particular.  In the margins of the excerpt,  jot what you would consider the most effective images.  Now, go back once again and concentrate on the other DIDLS and do the same thing.   When you are done with this, go to the list of TONE words on the ivory packet you got today or from pages E1, E3, E4 in the Poetry packet and look for around 5 words from these pages (or of your own choice) which best describe the TONE of this GATSBY passage. Jot them down.   Do these words fit what you thought from the outset--positive, negative, neutral, indifferent? 

    2 TONE MULTIPLE CHOICE EXERCISES  Click HERE to print out a copy of this exercise.  Read each passage and choose the word that best describes the tone. As you read, underline what parts of the passage made you arrive at your answer.   Click HERE for a sheet on more specific tone words. You may have to look up some words (i.e., simpering, bantering, pedantic, disdainful, sardonic?)

    3.  Camus passage ( from The Stranger)   Read the Camus passage ( from The Stranger) on page E6 of the Poetry packet.  Do the same thing as you did with the Gatsby excerpt.   On the back of your GATSBY NOTES, WRITE "STRANGER NOTES."

Today's Quotes of the Day

from The Great Gatsby:

Page 8 "Gatsby turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men."

Page 100-101 "It is invariably saddening to look through new eyes at things upon which you have expended your own powers of adjustment."

Page 118 "It occurred to me that there was no difference between men, in intelligence or race, so profound as the difference between the sick and the well."

Page 170 "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made…"

Page 171 "I became aware of the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors’ eyes — a fresh, green breast of the new world. Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby’s house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder."

Page 172 "tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further…And on fine morning - / So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."

Sonnet #112

Your love and pity doth the impression fill

Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow;

For what care I who calls me well or ill,

So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow?

You are my all the world, and I must strive

To know my shames and praises from your tongue:

None else to me, nor I to none alive,

That my steel'd sense or changes right or wrong.

In so profound abysm I throw all care

Of others' voices, that my adder's sense

To critic and to flatterer stopped are.

Mark how with my neglect I do dispense:

You are so strongly in my purpose bred

That all the world besides methinks are dead.

Quotes of the Day today are from

MERCHANT OF VENICE:

I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano,-
A stage, where every man must play a part;
And mine a sad one.
The Merchant of Venice, 1. 1

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
The Merchant of Venice, 1. 3

A goodly apple rotten at the heart:
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!
The Merchant of Venice, 1. 3

All that glisters is not gold.
The Merchant of Venice, 2. 7

If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
The Merchant of Venice, 3. 1

Tell me where is fancy bred,
Or in the heart or in the head?
The Merchant of Venice, 3. 2

The quality of mercy is not strained,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway,
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's,
When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew,
Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That in the course of justice none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy.
The Merchant of Venice, 4. 1

How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
The Merchant of Venice, 5. 1

MEMORIZE A SONNET!

77 LOVE SONNETS BY GARRISON KEILLOR

From Garrison Keillor:

"When I was 16, Helen Fleischman assigned me to memorize Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 29, "When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state" for English class, and fifty years later, that poem is still in my head. Algebra got washed away, and geometry and most of biology, but those lines about the redemptive power of love in the face of shame are still here behind my eyeballs, more permanent than my own teeth. The sonnet is a durable good. These 77 of mine include sonnets of praise, some erotic, some lamentations, some street sonnets and a 12-sonnet cycle of months. If anything here offends, I beg your pardon, I come in peace, I depart in gratitude."
