In this case, as Jack starts to become more confident, his writing style is enhanced and the teacher notices this too and he is lucky enough to meet his literary hero by inviting him via a letter to his school and show him his poem.

He was still the shy boy fearful of talking with other but he makes progress, after Mr. Dean Myers goes to visit his school, Jack decides to send him a letter thanking him for going and for reading his first letter and the poem, because as we may have seen throughout the book he is better with written words than with
Neil Perry was a good student; he wanted to do what was best for him and not what his mom and dad wanted. For example, Neil loved words and acting. Neil quoted poetry and felt poetry was the highest form of creativity. At the beginning of every Dead Poets meeting, Neil would recite the following: “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life” (Leonard).
The Future would show him how he would be respected when he died if Scrooge continued to act how he does presently. By now Scrooge knows he was cruel. When future came he said-contrary to the first time,”But as I know that your purpose is to do me good and as I hope to live to be another from what I was, I am prepared to bear you company… the night is waning fast, and it is precious tim to me.” (pg.711) Scrooge now wants to change and accepts he was cruel. Scrooge was then shown how others would take his belongings and sell them after he dies. He then saw how the Cratchit’s deal with Tiny Tim’s death.
Is Mr. Keating a good english teacher? In my opinion, yes because he shows so much he cares about his students and his passion teaching his way, not by a book. Mr. Keating teaches his students about being more independent and more passionate about what they want to do or be. Mr. Keating is doing this because many of the parents are putting so much pressure on their kids to become a doctor or a lawyer. The reasons why many of the students listens to Mr. Keating is because he uses different teaching skills, making it seem more fun.
Not only does he believe that the question misrepresents the value of teaching, but it also seems to disregard the opportunities that can be taken from class. The sarcastic tone helps portray Wayman’s frustration and annoyance, and the juxtaposition emphasizes the differences between the two opposite types of answers to the question. The repetition of two words at the beginning of each stanza further accentuates the juxtaposition and the range of situations that could have happened when one was absent from class. In the end, “Did I Miss Anything?” serves as a reaction of the poet towards the common question asked by students, and it communicates the value and importance of one’s presence in the
Taking an example from Cummings work, he occasionally doesn’t capitalize the letter “I” because he wants us to focus on why he did that. What is the meaning behind him capitalizing certain letters, and using a bundle of semicolons in his work? It makes us research the poems more to try to understand it better, it makes the poem worth reading. Works Cited Baum, S. V. Esti, E.E.C: E.E. Cummings and the Critics.
Keating did not just inspire the students to think for themselves, he also encouraged them to seize the day. Mr. Keating consistently reminds the students that although studying and working hard is important; they must not forget that they are members of the human race. They must not forget that things like beauty, romance, and love are what they really live for. Inspired by Mr. Keating, the students revive the Dead Poets Society. They went to a secret cave where they shared their secret dreams, hopes and poems that they have written.

An anonymous author once said, “You say it 's your life therefore your decisions, but are you aware that your choices will not affect only you, but also those around you, who care and love you dearly even if you aren 't aware of that. So make the right decisions and choices in life to make not only yourself proud and happy but also those around you.” Throughout the many books we read during class there seemed to be a running theme through a few of them. Men make rash decisions and act on these rash decisions while women stop and think things through before they act. According to crisiscounseling.org, Dr. Michael G. Conner author of “Understanding The Difference Between Men and Women” writes, “... male attraction to high speed activities and reckless behavior that usually involve collisions with other males or automobiles. Men invented the game “chicken”, not women.” So in this paper I will discuss how men make rash decisions in Othello, how men make rash decisions in Wuthering Heights, how men make rash decisions in In Evil Hour, why men act the way they do, why women are different, and why people could argue against my reasoning.
“Who Am I?” is a poem condensed and modified by Gilbert Wrenn. This poem could possibly mean that the speaker is questioning his own identity. Unlike most titles, this title is not straightforward and it is also a question which means that even the speaker of this poem has a sense of unsurety. The author of this poem is quite clever because the title compels the audience to continue reading in order to answer the question: “Who Am I?” This poem expresses the basic reality for everyone. The author uses symbolic words such as “masks” and he constantly proclaims that these masks hides his true personality.
