영화의 한 장면

Legendary 🖤 #deadpoetssociety 📕

Robin Williams’s character, John Keating, was based on two of Schulman’s former teachers: Harold Clurman, who taught at the Actors and Directors Lab, and Samuel Pickering, who taught Schulman’s sophomore English class. While Keating’s inspiring speeches may have come from Clurman, his quirky teaching style came from Pickering. In an essay, Pickering wrotethat he sometimes taught class while standing on a desk (as Keating does) or in a trashcan. One of his students remembers Pickering making him stand on a chair and flap his arms every time the class said the word “nevermore” while reading Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. “I did such things not so much to awaken students as entertain myself,” Pickering wrote. “If I had fun, I suppose I thought, the boys would have fun, too, and maybe even enjoy reading and writing.”
