Recently, I read Selected Poems, by Langston Hughes. I relished the thought of the ingeniousness Langston uses in his poems. This book gives me a sense of all the ideas that ran through his mind, his creativity.
This book only contained poems so “it’s not much to go off.” But Langston was passionate. He wanted his words to have meaning and be repeated till they were fully understood.
He wanted others to feel the pain/promise/passion/peace/pureness and even placid emotion. It needed to stand out. It needed to tell his story without actually writing it. And I see it.Tags: African Americans Harvest Collegiate High School Langston Hughes Writer
