Review by

I’m not exactly sure what to think of Dead Poets Society by N. H. Kleinbaum. I mean, I really liked it; I gave it a five-star rating, but I’m not sure what to say about it. In the beginning, I thought it was stupid. I couldn’t imagine boys crying and acting so childishly. Then I realized that these boys are in high school, some in middle school. I took a look around at my own students and realized that it wasn’t such a stretch to imagine this actually happening.I hope to someday be a teacher like Mr. Keating. He taught those boys what really mattered--themselves. Dead Poets Society teaches all people a lesson. For adults, it teaches that we must be accepting of the individual, not only of his or her personality, but also his or her beliefs, wants, and needs. For teenagers, it teaches that each has a voice, but that it takes a lot to be heard. For teachers, it teaches that understanding ourselves and our students is more important that memorizing Latin verbs or how to tell which poem is better and why. All poetry is good; it all spoke to someone at one point.I believe that this is an important book and that all teenagers/pre-teens should read it. I don’t believe that it should be forced down their throats, but I do believe that its message is clear.
