Dead Poets Society

Dead Poets ran quicker than I expected, I wanted it to go on, to see more. But I suppose, as ever, it is better to be left wanting than wanting to leave.

Robin Williams plays John Keating beautifully. Keating’s pedagogy is as enriching for the viewer as for the boys of Welton, channelling Thoreaux and many other… dead poets. I found myself wishing I could have been shown poetry in that way. As something more than dead men.
