    • POEM: Richard Cory by Edwin Arlington Robinson (5/14/2007 4:11:00 PM)

      Richard, I believe, surrounds himself with lower class people because he does have low self-esteem. His piers (upper class) see Richard as quite ordinary. The lower class, however, admires him for his wealth and education. That what draws him to be 'human' to them because he seeks their attention, approval and friendship. These people, however admire him, but they do not love him. They don't feel they are good enough to be with him or question his motivations for wanting to be with them. As a consequence, Richard sees himself as an outsider to both upper AND lower class. A man ouside of society and alone, and his lonliness kills him.
