Emily Dickinson Revisited

Posted: January 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

‘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 day
To an admiring blog!’

For Caroline, from Mark and QRG and Miss Emily D.

    Hello there.

    There’s no such actual thing as the ‘PC brigade’*. So referring to it in arguments doesn’t really work.

    * It was made up by the Tooth Fairy.

    Nothing.

  3. no it’s ok . I just didnt understand the exact reference of your comment.

    I don’t think that ‘the PC brigade’ is a great term. I think I was quoting it from another comment, but using it to refer to liberal/left consensus on issues like feminism.

    I think anton is a bit lazy/annoyed or something to be locking his comments! Oh well.

    Anton’s not used to having so much froth and bother underneath his posts- I can completely understand why he feels a bit overwhelmed. Commments on his blog are usually a lot more light-hearted. I still love his blog…

    As for you, QRG- well, I might not completely agree with you about your general view of feminism but I respect your ideas , and overall I really love your blog and find your creative writing here very beautiful and moving.

  5. How dreary to be somebody!
    How public, like a frog
    To tell your name the livelong day
    To an admiring blog!’

    This is how I feel about my online writing life in a nutshell! Thanks for seeing to the heart of the matter.
