1. A modern meaning of the word "gentleman" is well-behaved or polite. Record examples from the poem supporting this definition. “quietly arrayed”, “human when he talked” makes readers think that Cory was respectful and polite in addition to being handsome and rich. 2. An older meaning of the word "gentleman" is well-born. Record words from the poem supporting Richard Cory's station in life. To what class does Richard Cory belong? He’s in upper class. “richer than a king and admirable schooled in every grace.” 3. The use of the word "pavement" in line 2 not only creates alliteration, but it also creates meaning. A "pavement" is lower than a sidewalk. Knowing this, how does this choice of word contribute meaning to the poem? The lower class on the pavement looked up to Richard Cory. 4. Line 5 states Richard Cory is "quietly arrayed." Arrayed means dressed, so why the choice of the word "quietly"? What meaning does the word "quietly" add to the word "arrayed," and what does this tell you about Richard Cory?

    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.
