Edwin Arlington Robinson’s The Mill

Edwin Arlington Robinson's Richard Cory

- Edwin Arlington Robinson's Richard Cory I have always secretly envied my dearest high school friend Erin.  It was easy to be jealous of Erin since she was tall with beautiful blonde hair that turned many heads.  She possessed grace and style and had the coolest car.  Though people try to resist envy, most succumb to it from time to time.  As people focus on all that they lack, they tend to ignore the flaws in those they envy.  The observers in the poem Richard Cory allow envy to cloud their perception of themselves.         Cory appears to have it all.  The poor townspeople look at him and they see the qualities that they themselves lack.  An ugly person may believe that if they...   [tags: Edwin Arlington Robinson Richard Cory Essays]

Analysis of Richard Cory by Edwin Arlington Robinson

- In “Richard Cory”, Edwin Arlington Robinson uses irony, simplicity, and perfect rhyme to depict the theme of the poem.

The poem is about a man who everyone thinks is a “gentleman from sole to crown”, who then commits suicide. Irony is used in the poem very skillfully to show that appearances may be deceiving. When reading the poem, you get caught up in the song-like rhythm and it intensifies the effect of the tragedy....   [tags: Richard Corey Edwin Arlington Robinson]
