Selected poems by langston hughes
The Selected Poems Of Langston Hughes makes me feel “educated” (in a sense)
because of the quick turn it can take from appreciating life and the littlest things, too big issues like Racism and gender equality.
I also appreciate the way he expresses his feelings towards everything, and gives you another way to view the world.
The poem that sticks out to me most is..
I am so tired of waiting,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two –
And see what worms are eating
At the rind.
I picked this poem because of the different ways it could be interpreted. It can be referred to as global issues, everyone would care about. Or peculiar issues that apply to a certain group.
I find that the best type of way to give a poem, A way so everyone can see it and understand the in debt meaning.
The rhythm it provides, gives you a 100 different ways to respond and think about.
