‘Dead Poet’s Society’ Reflection and Connection
Both the play and the quote from Macbeth are both relating to life. Life is short, and you have a choice on how you choose to live it. But, the quote “Tomorrow” from Macbeth, he says that there is no meaning to life. After he lost Lady Macbeth, he lost himself. ‘Carpe Diem’ means seize the day. They use that a lot in the Dead Poet’s Society movie as the moral of the movie is for us to follow our dreams and even if we fail, so be it because at least we tried as we’re only young once. We should take every opportunity that is given to us and to take it as an advantage. Do what makes you happy. The movie also taught me to stand up for what is right and to what I believe in. In the beginning, I had no idea what the movie was going to be about but after watching the whole thing intently, it was actually a very good movie and I really enjoyed both the story line and the actors. This movie taught me the power of the English language and through our writing, it can say a lot about a person.
