Warm Up (in notebook).
All questions relate to the poem "Richard Cory."
  1. What does "clean favoured" mean?
  2. Why does he use the word "quietly" to help
    describe how Richard Cory is dressed?
  3. What does it mean to say that he
    "fluttered pulses when he said, 'Good Morning'"?
  4. How is the ending ironic?
  5. Use a quote from Cherry to show how this poem relates to her.
    Follow the model below:
    When Cherry says, "__________," she is saying
    something similar to the message of "Richard Cory."
    She means that________.

Whenever Richard Cory went downtown, 
We people on the pavement looked at him: 
He was a gentleman from sole to crown, 
Clean favoured and imperially slim.

And he was always quietly arrayed, 
And he was always human when he talked; 
But still he fluttered pulses when he said, 
"Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.

And he was rich – yes, richer than a king – 
And admirably schooled in every grace: 
In fine, we thought that he was everything 
To make us wish that we were in his place.

So on we worked, and waited for the light, 
And went without the meat and cursed the bread; 
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night, 
Went home and put a bullet through his head.
