1. What is the central message? How does it compare to the poem “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow”?
The central message of the movie “Dead Poets Society” is that life is short and we should make the most out of it, leave all our thoughts in the moment and don’t worry about the future. This movie is about having a voice, that we need to live in the now. In the poem “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow” by William Shakespeare, the message being shared is that life is short and we are fake, we are actors trying to get through life. That life is meaningless and stupid. both pieces of literature express that life is short, but in Dead Poets Society the mood is optimistic, and tells a greater story, to make life worth while, as we still have it. Time goes by quickly and it will burrow itself before our eyes see it gone. Live in the moment. The mood in the poem “Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow” is sad and depressing
