3. Analysis
 Unlocking of Difficulties
Today, we will discuss the poem “If” by
Rudyard Kipling. We will define first the Disaster – it means misfortune or bad luck
difficult words found in the poem which were Foe – they are your enemies or opponents
given to you yesterday as your assignment. Heap – stack or bundle
Everybody read the words and its meaning. Impostors – pretenders or fakes
Knaves - a dishonest man
Sinew – strength
Stoop – means to bow or to bend
Trap – trick or set up or deception
Virtue – good quality or morally good
Triumph – these are your achievements,
accomplishments, or successes
Worn-out - used until no longer usable or
Twisted - forced out of its natural or proper
shape; crumpled
Pitch-and-toss - a gambling game in which the
player who manages to throw a coin closest to
a mark gets to toss all the coins, winning those
that land with the head up

Since you already know the words that can

be found difficult in the poem, let’s move on
to the reading and discussion of the poem.

(Giving the background of Rudyard Kipling

and to the poem itself.)

Group yourselves into four groups. Each

group must have one representative only for
your reporting. We will have a draw lots for
the different stanzas that you will be going to
report. After the reporting I will ask some
questions and answer it orally. I will also give
some points.
I have different colored objects here. Each
color indicates different points.
Red – 10 pts.
Green – 5 pts.
Yellow – 7 pts.
Orange – 3 pts.
White – 2 pts.

The group who will get highest points will

get the highest grades for today’s lesson.

We will watch first a video. (Watching a video.)

We will have mp3 music on how to read the
poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling. Afterwards, you

By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your

If you can think - and not make thoughts your
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your

Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

(Having their oral recitation of the poem.)
