Scene 12

Scene 12

  • His fellow classmates giggle and he gets all blush-y.
  • Other students read their poems, but Todd says he didn't write one.
  • Oops.
  • Undeterred, Mr. Keating again quotes some Whitman and he makes Todd create a poem on the spot.
  • He succeeds, and his fellow students sit in silence for a moment before breaking into applause.
  • The class moves outdoors for more poetry-and-sport, to the tune of classical music. It's like gym class with sonnets.
  • They lift Mr. Keating and carry him off the field, cheering.
