Inspired by Keating, the boys resurrect the Dead Poets Society.

This horrible outrage echoes through the hallowed halls of Welton, applying even greater pressure to the Dead Poets. When Mr. and Mrs. Perry demand a thorough investigation, Welton administration links the Dead Poets Society, which they determined as the cause for the upheaval, to Mr. Keating. Each member is called before the administration and their parents to sign a confession statement indicating that Mr. Keating filled their minds with these lofty ideals ultimately leading to Neil’s suicide. Richard Cameron (Dylan Kussman), ultimately a realist concerned most with doing what is already determined to be right, signs the statement and encourages the rest of them to do the same. Knowing full well that Keating was not responsible, Cameron lets him take the rap to free himself.

Keating encourages non-conformity through expressing the idea of the Dead Poets Society.

During the formation of the Dead Poet’s Society, Cameron worries about the personal implications of the club saying to one boy, “[Do] you know how many demerits we're talking?”....


Knox Overstreet played a fair part in the film Dead Poets Society.

“The Dead Poets Society” is set in the mid 60’s in an upper class prep school.

Dead Poets Society: Final Script

"Dead Poets Society" is a collection of pious platitudes masquerading as a courageous stand in favor of something: doing your own thing, I think. It's about an inspirational, unconventional English teacher and his students at "the best prep school in America" and how he challenges them to question conventional views by such techniques as standing on their desks. It is, of course, inevitable that the brilliant teacher will eventually be fired from the school, and when his students stood on their desks to protest his dismissal, I was so moved, I wanted to throw up.

“The movie “Dead Poets Society” was written by Thomas Schulman, a 1968
graduate of Montgomery Bell Academy. The teacher portrayed by Robin
Williams in the movie was based on one of Mr. Schulman’s teachers while he
was at MBA, Mr. Sam Pickering. The events in the movie, however, are purely
fictional.”
