One of my favorite poems by Emily Dickinson was 'I'm Nobody! Who are you?'.  In this poem my mindset of the type of poetry that Emily Dickinson wrote, and her personality in general was enhanced.  This poem is telling the reader that being a shy unsocial person is much better than being a social person.  The narrator even admits that they are a nobody asking the reader "Are you - Nobody - too?".   I just found this poem amusing in the fact that It almost described Emily Dickinson to a tee.


  1. "i'm nobody.." was a good poem. It was one of the few that I actually liked. I do differ from your view on what the poem is trying to get across, but then again i could be completely off the mark.

  2. I too enjoyed "I'm Nobody! Who are you?"! In my head I saw it a little bit different than you, but I think everyone will interpret it differently and because of that reason it goes to show how great and interesting her poems truly are. I too wrote about her for my last blog post. If you get a chance check it out! Great post.

  3. This was my absolute favorite poems from Emily. I can't quite put my finger on the reason why I like it so much. I don't really consider myself someone who is unsociable but there are times I feel like I'm lost in this world of "big wigs" and everyone out there trying to live a glamorous life. I'm just me, nobody special, just me. And I think that is one of the reasons I liked it, because I can relate to it.
