The story The Great Gatsby and the poem Richard Cory relate to one another multiple ways. Primarily the main connection between both literary works is who Richard in the poem represents Gatsby’s character, a wealthy man who has all the money in the world but cannot buy happiness for himself. Similar to Gatsby, Richard struggles to fit in with society even though he seems to have everything a man could ask for. Also, both the poem and the story relate to one another as they share the same theme. Although Gatsby appeared to be grand and happy by throwing such extravagant parties, no one besides Nick Carraway truly got to know the real Gatsby. In the end, Gatsby's lack of real relationships and confusion with society led to his downfall. Just like Gatsby, Richard Cory could simply not bear to put up with society's front anymore. Richard Cory and Gatsby both appear to be well put together gentlemen with an ideal lifestyle. However taking a look below the surface it’s easy to see that this is only a clever façade to mask their true feelings.

There are obvious parallels in theme and subject from the poem Richard Cory and the book The Great Gatsby, such as position, true happiness, carelessness and the American Dream. I think the word that can sum up many of the themes in The Great Gatsby is position. The word encompasses themes like class, wealth, social standing, and others. Gatsby's whole life is spent trying to attain money and status so that he can reach a certain position in life. That theme is similar to the theme of the poem Richard Cory, the factory workers, the lower class like Gatsby, look up to Richard Cory, the upper class like Tom and Daisy, and you are given a sense that they would do anything to be in his place or at least even with him in class and social stature.

Daisy and Tom show how people can use their position to look down on others and live their life carelessly. As Nick says about Daisy, "in a moment she looked at me with an absolute smirk on her lovely face as if she had asserted her membership in a rather distinguished secret society to which she and Tom belonged." It is this that allows them to do whatever they want, because for them there is no consequence, Tom cheats on his wife and Daisy cheats on Tom then runs from the murder of Myrtle, and after both can still live unashamed. Richard Cory was high class, compared to the workers, and maybe he just couldn't live with himself anymore, maybe he wasn't truly happy, these people do not worry about paying for their actions so they do as they please and it could have just been that Mr. Cory's actions finally caught up to him, and he was so ashamed of himself he could bare to live anymore.

 

Lastly, both readings had the theme of the American Dream, the factory workers strived every day to achieve "Richard Cory status", whenever he walked by the workers were awestruck and jealous, in a sense they worked to become something from nothing. Gatsby was also a firm believer in the American Dream of self-made success. He has, after all, not only invented and self-promoted a whole new persona for himself, but has succeeded both financially and socially.
