Abstract

Emily Dickinson is a world-renowned American poet. She enjoys equal popularity with Walt Whitman and leaves around 1,800 poems after death. Her unique poetic thoughts and styles blaze a trail in modernism, providing the later modernists with splendid enlightenment. Under the guideline of Réne Wellek’s concepts of criticism, this paper examines the modernity of Emily Dickinson’s I’m Nobody! Who are you? with echoes of the “Nobody” emerging from the Covid-19 outbreak, aiming to illuminate the modernity of classical literature and its eternal implications even in contemporary society.
