“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 your name–the livelong June–
To an admiring Bog!


  1. What do you think she means by Nobody?
  2. Why would “they” banish the nobodies?
  3. What does the “admiring Bog” stand for? (A bog is a swampy area where frogs and such would live.)
  4. Does the narrator like being a nobody? How can you tell? Use a line from the poem to back up what you say.
  5. How would you feel about being famous?

Fame is a bee
It has a song–
It has a sting–
Ah, too, it has a wing.

IN CHAT PUBLIC: What do the song, the sting, and the wing represent about Fame?
