Natalia Shved Paper 2 over Short Poem, 500 words “Richard Cory” by Edwin Arlington Robinson Does a person’s appearance always say everything about who they are? Should we always judge people by looking at their external appearance instead of inner? The author Edwin Arlington Robinson nicely shows in his poem “Richard Cory” the other way of looking at the person’s inner and external life. This problem existed for so long and still continues to exist in these days, when we judge people by looking at their appearance; how they look, how they dress, how they talk. By reading this poem we see that Richard Cory is a flawless, self-contained man. He is a good example of those who strived to be rich and well known. By having all that he does not count himself as a happy person. He seeks the real understanding with the outside world, with people; but they do not see anything else but his wealth “we thought that he is everything/ to make us wish that we were in his place” (line 11, 12).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
