Now online: She’s somebody! Who are you?

“For the first time since her death, almost all of her poetry, published and unpublished, finished and unfinished, appears together in high-resolution scans, just waiting for readers and scholars to page through it electronically,” writes Casey N. Cep in the Paris Review Daily.

A feat! — for somebody who had few poems published in her lifetime and thought of herself as a nobody. But — how dreary! — too:

I’m Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one’s name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!
