Nobody LA Questions

I’m Nobody
by Emily Dickinson

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd banish us – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog – To tell one's name –
the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!

Frogs constantly announce their presence by croaking, but they aren’t really important.

Frogs are essential to nature because they add a lively sound to an otherwise dreary bog.

Frogs only croak during the month of June, which is a time to be noticed.

Frogs are slimy and disgusting creatures that belong in a sticky bog.****

  4. I would relook at question 3.

    On the others, I reminded myself that Emily was a really shy, reserved introverted person, that avoided contact with most people outside a very low number of personal contacts. Some think she suffered from depression.
