L'attimo fuggente by Peter Weir( Visual )

6 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in Italian and English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anno 1959. A Welton, uno dei collegi più rinomati degli Stati Uniti, l'educazione e l'insegnamento si basano sui valori della tradizione, della disciplina, dell'onore e dell'eccellenza. Solo l'ultimo arrivato tra i professori, il docente di letteratura inglese John Keating, ha uno stile pedagogico anticonformista. I ragazzi, di natura trasgressivi e vitali, rimangono affascinati dai metodi inusuali del professore. Egli spinge gli allievi ad assaporare il gusto della vita e a cogliere l'attimo fuggente: fa strappare le pagine dei libri scritti in arido linguaggio accademico, fa salire gli studenti in piedi sulla cattedra per vedere la vita da altre prospettive, insegna loro a scrivere poesie. Sette dei suoi studenti fondano inoltre "la società dei poeti estinti", un gruppo clandestino che legge poesie di notte in una caverna, poco lontano dal collegio. Tra i partecipanti spiccano Neil e Todd, il primo un vulcano di vitalità, il secondo timido e riservato Neil, preso dall'entusiasmo per l'arte, decide di andare contro il diniego del padre e recitare una commedia di Shakespeare. Quando però il genitore lo scopre e decide di punirlo mandandolo all'accademia militare, egli si suicida. Il professore Kieting viene ritenuto responsabile della morte del giovane, reo secondo i genitori e gli altri professori di aver usato metodi devianti sui ragazzi e di aver spinto Neil a coltivare la passione per il teatro. Espulso dalla scuola, mentre raccoglie le sue cose dall'aula di insegnamento, Kieting assiste ad una scena toccante: il timido Todd, per far capire al professore che le sue lezioni non sono state vane, sale in piedi sul proprio banco seguito dalla maggior parte della classe, insensibile alle minacce del nuovo insegnante di letteratura
