It was really my first introduction of how poetry could actually be relevant to my life - I realy identified with a lot of the kids in that movie - the Ethan Hawke and the Robert Sean Leonard characters especially, well more Ethan Hawke's character - that was me at school :?


I loved that character. I'm especially fond of the flying desk incident! :lol:

Yes nice part that.

I loved the "Captain, oh my captain" part when they all stand on their desks - always makes me fill up.

In a almost unrelated incident does anyone here remember the great mid 90s TV show My So-Called Life?

There was a similarly inspirational teacher in one episode of that who was similarly dismissed in the end.

Poetry in movies/TV - idea for a new thread perhaps :wink:

Yes, I remember that show...

another favorite part in DPS is when Knox Overstreet first lays his trembling hands on Chris at the party...too beautiful, that scene. :shock:

Yes, I have it, too. I also love the part when Nuwanda (Charlie) recites "She Walks in Beauty" to the gals in the cave...too classic--Charlie is one of my very favorite characters--a romantic thru and thru, that character is--he speaks to me! :wink:

I have a big chunk of Charlie in me - the romantic gestures, the burning passion etc but I'm nowhere being as confident and brazen as he is - I wish I had his self-belief and determination.

I don't know - help me here ladies do girls think that type of behaviour silly, humourously charming or endearing??

Charlie who? The name's "Nuwanda" :P

Humorously charming and endearing in moderation, I'd say. I think it could get exhausting after too long. . . but at the same time, very boring without it at all :wink:

:lol: :lol: Wait. Is that a serious question?? :shock: Those qualities are simply irresistable--no other way to put it. Then again, Denise has not one reserved, Victorianist bone in her body, so...you may need to ask a wide array of female types...Uh, uh...not one doubt--this gal would've gone for Charlie for certain!! :wink:

Say a guy ran in the rain for about a mile to catch someone at the bus stop to ask them out - would you find that creepy stalker-like or romantic?

A "friend" did something similar once :oops:

Are you kidding?? I'd say if he caught up to me...I'd take from his lips what little breath he had left... :oops: :wink: :lol:

Well, tell your "friend," Saturn, that if any of the guys I'd rejected* in the past had done something like that for me, I might have thought twice about rejecting them :wink:


*"Rejected" is a very harsh word, and I don't like using it. Perhaps "let down gently" is more like it. :roll:
