Todd Anderson and his friends at Welton Academy can hardly believe how different life is since their new English professor, the flamboyant John Keating, has challenged them to "make your lives extraordinary! Inspired by Keating, the boys resurrect the Dead Poets Society--a secret club where, free from the constraints and expectations of school and parents, they let their passions run wild. As Keating turns the boys on to the great words of Byron, Shelley, and Keats, they discover not only the beauty of language, but the importance of making each moment count. Can the club and the individuality it inspires survive the pressure from authorities determined to destroy their dreams? But the Dead Poets pledges soon realize that their newfound freedom can have tragic consequences. Can the club and the individuality it inspires survive the pressure from authorities determined to destroy their dreams?

Set in 1959, New England, the story centers on an unorthodox English teacher's struggle to inspire independent thought and a passion for life in his class of young boys. His insistence that each of his students "seize the day" and make the most of life inspires their impressionable minds.

it feels like we are losing ground as writers at a time when we are supposed to be more important than ever. traditionally reading and writing has always been reserved for the enlightened. we now live in a world where a greater percentage of people are literate, so why do we still accept to read bad stories. and why are writers becoming obsolete

The “carpe diem” scene from Dead Poets Society as an anticipatory set for beginning a teaching unit on poetry

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 12, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, course: Teaching Short Literary Forms, language: English, abstract: Students often groan at the thought of facing another poetry unit. “This is stupid.”, “It doesn’t make sense.”, “Why do I have to deal with this?”. These are common remarks often spilling out of the students at the thought of dealing with poetry. In an attempt to get them to grasp some of the poetry that they will face throughout their education, this teaching unit attempts to use a movie scene as a way of hooking the students. The unit hopes to make enough thematic connections to allow the students the opportunity to more closely examine and explicate a poem by exposing the conduit between it and an individual's biography. In addition to the thematic connections, this unit will also reveal common elements of poetry in a non-threatening environment. Students will learn about concepts like metaphors, allusions and other elements of poetry by first discovering them in the film. At the same time they upgrade and extend their vocabulary with words, terms, idioms and the vernacular that is used within the dialogs around the poem. Their newly acquired knowledge enables them to articulate both personal discernments and popular apprehensions on the vicissitudes of life (and may even trigger the desire in one or the other to start writing his or her own poem in English, whether it be in a more traditional form or in a rap or a song) and thus serves the primary target of foreign language education: intercultural communicative competence (cf. Council of Europe 2001: 43). Cinema is a vital and powerful medium, and the hope is that it can be used in an effort to hook the students and bring them closer to the enjoyment of poetry. The presentation of poetry in a form that combines four aspects, namely the visual (or optic), phonetic (or sound), kinetic (moving in a visual succession) and emotional aspect is of great significance to the analysis of what is perceived. Watching a movie is probably the easiest and most comfortable way of knowledge transfer that the students are familiar with. The visualization of a plot in a film offers more challenging potential for what contemporary literature educationalists call the personal response approach (cf. Nünning/Surkamp 2006: 64) than a book (ibid. 247). The learner gets emotionally involved almost immediately and throughout the scene.

Film Theory Goes to the Movies

This book claims that film theory is not just about Eisenstein any more. While film theory has produced a significant body of influential scholarship, defining the cutting edge of critical analysis for the past two decades, the majority of this work has focused on classic Hollywood, European cinema, and avant-garde films. More recent films, particularly blockbusters, are generally absent from this field of study, relegated to the realm of popular reviewing. This book attempts to fill this gap by providing provocative analyses of such films as The Silence of the Lambs, Dances With Wolves, Terminator II, Pretty Woman, Truth or Dare, Mystery Train and Jungle Fever. Within the field of film study, these essays argue for the continuing need to engage in critical, ideological dialogues, and within the broader context of the academy, this collection debates cultural authority, canonicity, multiculturalism, and radical pedagogy. Film Theory Goes to the Movies employs a variety of critical approaches, from industry analysis to reception study, to close readings informed by feminist, deconstructive, and postmodernist theory.
