Sayings. Робота над висловлюваннями

      “Some  books  are  to be  tasted,  others  to  be  swallowed,  and  some  few  to  be  chewed  and  digested”.

     “A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad  novel tells us the truth about its author.”

        G. K. Chesterton

       T: Have you ever heard these saying? Read and  translate it. Explain how you understand these  saying? What is the main sense of it?

       The quotation tells you how to read books of different kinds. I suppose most travel books are “to be tasted; it’s enough to dip into them and read  bits  here  and  there.  If  you’re  fond  of  crime  stones,  you  will  read  them  quickly;  you’ll

swallow” them. And then there are books that  you’ll read slowly and carefully. If a book’s on an important  subject,  and  a  subject  you’re  interested in, you’ll want to chew and digest it. And  you’ll want to weigh what the author says, and  consider his ideas and arguments.

       T: Is it important for an educated person to know a lot of things in different branches? Do  you  try  to  find  out  more  about  the  huge world around us?

GULLIVER’S TRAVELS

     T: In А Voyage to Lilliput, the first part of the  book,  Gulliver,  an  English  ship’s  doctor,  is shipwrecked in a storm somewhere in the Indian Ocean.  He  assumes  his  shipmates  have  all drowned, as he alone manages to swim to land In  this  extract,  he  is  exhausted  after  his  long swim. He does not know what country he is in, and there is no sign of any of the inhabitants.

       I  lay  down  on  the  grass,  which  was  very  short and soft, where I slept sounder than ever I remember to have done in my life, and as I reckoned, above nine hours; for when I awaked, it was just daylight. I attempted to rise, but was not

able to stir. For as I happened to lie on my back; I found my arms and legs were strongly fastened on each side to the ground; and my hair, which was long and thick, tied down in the same manner.  I  felt  several  slender  ligatures  across  my  body,  from  my  armpits  to  my  thighs.  I  could only look upwards; the sun began to grow hot, and the light offended my eyes. I heard a confused noise about me, but in the posture I lay, could see nothing except the sky.

       In a little time I felt something alive moving on my left leg, which advancing gently forward over my  breast,  came  almost  up  to  my  chin,  when bending  my  eyes  downwards  I  as  much  as I could, I realized it was a not six inches high,

with a bow and arrow in his hands, and a quiver at his back. In the meantime, I felt at least forty more of the same kind (as I guessed) following the first. I was in the greatest astonishment, and roared so loud that they all ran back in a fright; and some of them, as I was afterwards told, were hurt with the falls they got by leaping from my sides upon the ground.. However, they soon returned; and one of them, who dared so far as to get a full sight of my face, lifting up his hands and  eyes  by  way  of  admiration,  cried  out  in a shrill,  but  distinct  voice, hekinab  degul. The

others  repeated  the  same  words  several  times, but I then knew not what they meant. I lay all this  while,  as  the  reader  may  believe,  in  great uneasiness.

       At length, struggling to get loose, I had the fortune to break the strings and wrench out the pegs that fastened my left arm to the ground; for, by lifting it up to my face, I discovered the methods they  had  taken  to  bind  me;  and,  at  the  same time, with a violent pull, which gave me excessive pain, I a little loosened the strings that tied down my hair on the left side, so that I was just able to turn my head about two inches. But the creatures ran off a second time, before I could seize  them;  at  which  point  there  was  a  great shout in a very shrill accent. And after it ceased, I  heard  one  of  them  cry  aloud, tolgo  phonac; when in an instant I felt above a hundred arrows shot on my left hand, which pricked me like so many  needles.  And  besides,  they  shot  another flight  into  the  air,  as  we  do  bombs  in  Europe; many  of  which,  I  suppose,  fell  on  my  body, (though I felt them not) and some on my face, which I immediately covered with my left hand.

      T: What  do  you  want  to  know  about  the  geographical position of the unknown land?

     Scanning. Читання тексту з метою максимально повного та точного розуміння
