摘 要

死亡诗社作为教育类电影,其体现的追求自由反对传统的教育精神一直对教育制度的变革起着不可磨灭的借鉴意义。以往的研究重点在于浪漫主义与现实主义之间的关系、教育制度的变革、情感教学的意义等。而本文在阅读与借鉴先前文献的基础上进一步从人物微表情,动作, 语言等角度研究人物的心理变化与情感特征,进而探索出悲剧人物形象产生的根本原因。本文共分为四部分,第一部分为简介,第二部分分析电影主要人物的性格特征,第三部分分析电影次要人物的性格特征,最后总结。结论认为尼尔死亡的真正原因在于不愿向传统主义屈服,基廷的悲剧原因在于其有限的能力无法改变整个局势,传统主义代表们的悲剧原因在于思想上的悲哀,面对新思想的崛起,仍然固守制度,不懂得变革。
