why do we read and write poetry
Chris, you can't be in here. If they catch you, we're both gonna be in big trouble. :
Oh, but it's fine. :
Shh, sh, Chris. :
Oh, but it's fine for you to come barging into my school and make a complete fool out of me? :
I didn't mean to make a fool out of you. :
Well, you did; Chet found out, and it took everything I could do to keep him from coming out here and killing you. Knox, you have got to stop this stuff! :
I can't, Chris; I love you. :
Knox, you say that over and over; you don't - you don't even know me! ]
Will you be joining us, Mr. Overstreet? :
Go ahead, Captain, I'll walk. :
Knox, Knox, it just so happens that I could care less about you. :
Then you wouldn't be here warning me about Chet. :
I have to go; I'll be late for the play. :
Are you going with him? ]
Chet, to a play?
Are you kidding? :
Then come with me. :
Knox, you are so infuriating! :
Come on, Chris, just give me one chance. If you don't like me after tonight, I'll stay away forever. :
Uh huh. :
I promise: Dead Poets' Honor. You come with me tonight, and then, if you don't want to see me again, I swear, I'll bow out. :
You know what would happen if Chet found out? :
He won't know anything. We'll sit in the back and sneak away as soon as it's over. :
And I suppose you would promise that this would be the end of it. :
Dead Poets' Honor. :
What is that? :
What will your verse be?
БWe donБt read and write poetry because itБs cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, БO me! O life! Б of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithlessБ of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life? Б БAnswer. That you are hereБББthat life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.
Б That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be? ББББJohn Keating (Robin Williams), Dead Poets Society The Бquestions of these recurringБ in my interpretation represent the questions that we always ask ourselves about our purpose in life. The Бendless trains of the faithlessБ in my interpretation represent those that live their lives aimlessly and sleepwalk through life day after day. What must we do other than sleepwalk though life? What must we as a human race do when we fail to examine the human condition and forget to live? When we forget to ask the most important questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I come from?
What is my purpose? We are here, life exists, and we have an identity with which we must fashion to our own desires. The verse that Whitman and Robin Williams refer to is the legacy you have to leave in the world. The powerful play refers to the role that we have in our lives to influence others. We exist in life to find our verse, to find our purpose and we must refuse this one chance we get at life, this one chance we have to get our flame to flicker in fun and fluidity. So what will your verse be? Carpe diem. Seize the day. If you enjoy reading my articles, could you do me a huge favor and click the heart Б icon? That really means a lot to me! Thank you veryб much!
