Moreover, it must be noted that conformity has a place in society. Although texts such as Dead Poets Society portray conformity in a negative light, one must realise that conformity can benefit society. For example, conforming to the laws of the government can help promote peace and stability in a nation. Also, it is important to note that Mr Keating's (the teacher) message to his students is not to reject authority but rather to act responsibly while rejecting responsibility.
In conclusion, conformity is part of life in society. It is important to understand that there are times when we need to stand up for what we believe in even if it means suffering the consequences. However, it is also important to remember that there are other times when we should remain silent and let others decide for themselves.
The theme of this poem corresponds to the theme of the film "Dead Poet's Society," because in the film, a group of boys were hesitant to form a poetry club until their teacher told them that while he was in the Dead Poet's Society, he experienced the true purpose of poetry and the depth of its meaning. Also, the movie is about how giving back to your community can help you find yourself.
This poem also relates to the film because in the poem, John Keats describes what it was like being in the presence of William Wordsworth when he was teaching. He says it was as if time stood still and nothing mattered except for the experience of seeing great poetry pour out of these men. Finally, the film shows us how poetry can lift people's spirits even during a crisis situation. When Mr. Todd asks the students if anyone has any idea who could have done such a thing, one student suggests that it might be someone trying to bring attention to himself or herself, but then John Keats comes up with the real reason: It was done by someone who doesn't want schools to be closed because no one wants to miss out on learning something new.
In conclusion, this poem relates to the film because it shows us how valuable knowledge can be if given the right context. If we were to lose this poem, we would lose all knowledge of how words can make people feel even though they are not reading them themselves. This act alone makes it worth knowing.
"Dead Poets Society" Teaches 5 Life Lessons That Everyone Can Apply
Through its characters, The Dead Poets Society, a film set in Welton Academy, a rigorous and prestigious all-boys private school, brings the ideology of transcendentalism to life. In this ideology, man is capable of reaching beyond his physical self to discover a greater purpose than just survival. Transcendentalists believe this discovery can be achieved through an understanding of one's relationship with God.
Dead Poets Society has been praised for its portrayal of education through sport. Directed by Peter Weir and based on the novel English as It Is Spoken Today by John McGahern, the movie stars Robin Williams as John Keating, a charismatic English teacher who inspires his young students at Welton Academy to reach their full potential. Under Keating's guidance, the students study poetry together and use their knowledge of literature to help others. They also have regular classroom discussions about important issues such as morality and religion. During one of these discussions, Keating discovers that some of his students are not living up to their potential and encourages them to drop out of school to work with him instead.
In addition to being considered one of the best films of 1989, The Dead Poets Society has been cited as an influence on other movies such as Good Will Hunting and Lord of the Rings.
In other words, society in some form or another is the theme of literature. The poet reveals his sentiments, and those of us who read his poems are captivated and feel at ease with both him and ourselves. After all, it is this link of solidarity between man and man that the poet or writer seeks via communication.
The relationship between the writer and society can be described as mutual beneficial interaction. The writer uses his talents to express himself which in return brings fame and fortune. Also, he can influence people by writing about certain issues which in turn helps society in general.
Furthermore, the writer can show the world how terrible or beautiful humanity can be by his/her work. This makes him/her a hero for many and a villain for others. In short, the writer is a medium through which people can express themselves and therefore has a significant role to play in society.
