Publisher's Description

A timeless drama about golden and missed opportunities, the dangers of conformity, and the power of influence.


Dead Poets Society tells the story of John Keating, an English teacher who returns to his preparatory alma mater to inspire his students with refrains of carpe diem (seize the day). Keating s unorthodox teaching methods challenge the students to make their lives extraordinary, to swim against the stream, and to dare to become freethinkers amidst parental and educational constraints.

This study will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie. To what extent should a person adhere to a carpe diem mentality? What are the advantages and disadvantages of conformity and its opposite, individuality? How does the movie portray parental influence? What is the purpose of education?
