The poem Richard Cory and the novel The Great Gatsby present stories that tell of similar themes. In a precedent way, both stories reveal the varied distinctions in a society in terms of position, personalities and wellbeing. Gatsby's lifestyle in The Great Gatsby is greatly defined by lavish endless parties that surprisingly, prove to be of no worth to him. His life is one full of hope for happiness. However, his quest for such a life is blinded by his love for material wealth. Just like Gatsby, Richard in Richard Cory leads a visually exciting life that everyone in the society would die for. Surprisingly, though, the material assets that he possesses do not seem to quench his thirst for happiness. Even though both characters appear to be happy, it is soon apparent by their tragic and sad endings that wealth cannot possibly buy one’s happiness. Richard and Gatsby are in pursuit of the American Dream that seems to be too elusive for such kinds of personalities.

Through reading both stories the reader gets the insight that a position is not necessarily what to work for. The themes in both stories are evidently intertwined, given the fact that both Richard and Gatsby are extremely materialistic. Upon reading Jay Gatsby's story, it soon becomes clear that themes such as that of the American dream and position in the society are the most prominent. Gatsby's perspective about life appears to be ideal for any mediocre person. His pursuit of the American dream is evidently obscured by the idea that Daisy will be attracted to him by his wealth. Due to this reason, Gatsby lacks true happiness, and his life ends up being described by carelessness and decadence. The life course of Gatsby is reflected in Richard's character when, despite the affluence and social appearance, he ends up taking his own life.

In a societal setting, it is common that those in high positions are ignorant and selfish people who delight in looking down upon those in the lower class. In The Great Gatsby when Nick visits the Buchanan family, Daisy is not pleased by the sight. She appears to be arrogant just because they have more wealth and are way up in the social ladder. Daisy’s arrogant ways soon pave for her infidelity. Her husband, Tom, is a true portrayal of immorality. He cheats on his wife and expects her to remain faithful. This unfaithful couple and Gatsby’s lifestyle portray how happiness is not measured by the power or possession of material wealth. The chaotic life that results from such life alludes to some degree of similarity to the life that Richard lives. He can only afford his fellow townsmen a brisk “Good-morning” and does not show any caring gesture.

 

Both readings portray the elemental nature of the American dream. The stories clearly show how differently the aspect of the American dream is emulated by different people. Town workers in Richard's story are awed by the wealth that Richard has. Even though both Richard and Gatsby share a similar notion of the American dream, other people in the society view the successful and happiness aspect of the American dream to be solely and greatly impacted by hard work.
