[El Club De Los Poetas Muertos. Dir: Peter Weir, 1989]

Esta historia maravillosa llevada al cine se basa en la novela de la periodista Nancy H. Kleinbaum. Después de haber visto la película quise saber más y leí la novela “El Club De Los Poetas Muertos“. En mi opinión, el papel de Robin Williams como profesor John Keating fue extraordinariamente bueno.

Hay lugares en los Estados Unidos que bien podrían ser la escuela “Welton Academy“. Me refiero a Cornell College (Iowa, EE UU).

To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time

Robert Herrick1591 – 1674

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
   Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
   Tomorrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, 
   The higher he’s a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
   And nearer he’s to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
   When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
   Times still succeed the former. 

Then be not coy, but use your time,
   And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
   You may forever tarry."
