What is the symbolism of the word 'bog' in 'I'm Nobody Who Are You' by Emily Dickinson?
The reference to frogs and their bog is an analogy for a person being admired by the public.

Well, I believe that the meaning of this poems is dying without any notice. In the poem the rose is picked form where it is and has died. Only small things that really neede…d and cared for the rose missed it. This includes the breeze, butterfly etc. The rose could symbolize Emily herself, and how she feels unnoticed in the world where no one really cares about her except her family. The bee, butterfly, breeze, and bird could represent her family or the only people who need and care about her.
Emily Dickinson wrote poetry to express her feelings about the outside world.
Emily Dickinson was born December 10, 1830 and died May 15, 1886. Therefore she was 56 years old.
Emily had a very reclusive life. She spent her years living upstairs at her father's house. She wrote as her way to express her feelings to the outside world. She was quite ce…rtain that she would be famous for her writing after death.
Emily Dickinson was particularly fond the poetry of John Keats and Robert Browning, the prose of John Ruskin and Sir Thomas Brown, and the novels of George Elliot and Charlett…e and Emily Bronte. Above all, the King James translation of the Bible significantly influenced her work. She was particularly fond of the Book of Revelation.
I believe you are thinking of the English novelist Charles Dickens, and no, they were not related.
Emily Dickinson attend Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth. Then, she left home to study at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. She spent only a year at Mount Holyoke beca…use she suffered from severe homesickness. Hope this helped! :)
She was almost blind due to crying so much, but no.
She was one of the earliest female poets in America. Dickinson was also one of the greatest poets in America. She was an inspiration to women throughout the world.
I think it means that she thinks nobody knows her and doesn't pay any attention to her. ..For one poetry is meant to invoke something in you, what does it mean to you? It actu…ally shouldn't matter what it means to me, but she doesn't want to be public. Who wants to be famous is what she ask, who wants to be under the world's watchful eye? It is better to be normal, or an outsider and live by your own standards.
No, Emily Dickinson did not marry. She had many close friends but she did not have many lovers. One of the possible romances she may have had was an elderly Judge by the… name of Otis Phillips Lord. In Emily's later years she withdrew from society and hardly saw anyone in person.
I'm not important! Why are you important? Are you also unimportant? Now we can be unimportant together-- it will be our little secret! Humanity doesn't like people who decide …to be unimportant. Being important is boring though! Everyone knows everything about you, like you were a croaking frog Always telling your personal problems To everyone in the swamp!

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was one of the earliest American poets, and one of the very few women published in her time. Most of her work was discovered after her death by her… sister Lavinia, but its publication garnered much of its critical acclaim in the late 20th century.
