The Dead Poet's Society
"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."
An English teacher brings an unconventional style to a staid prep school in this Robin Williams' classic that is both inspiring and bittersweet.
Time to seize the day, and make your Pens extraordinary! (Standing on your desk is optional). Might be worth looking into PoetryDB, checking out this Collection, and taking the opportunity to get fancy with typography.
- Typeset your favorite poem set in a beautiful, readable typeface. "O Captain! My Captain!", perhaps?
- A stylish RSVP page for a poetry reading
- A "Get a random poem" button that brings in a classic poem from an API or JSON file.
