Theme
“Emily Dickinson’s Secret Life” states that Dickinson was fiercely independent; she took sides in family crisis, refused to conform, and found her own way. In “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” Dickinson praises differences, her own included. Those who simply conform to society are dreary Somebodies.
