  • SELECTED POEMS OF LANGSTON HUGHES

    The poems Hughes wrote celebrated the experience of invisible men and women: of slaves who ‘rushed the boots of Washington’ of musicians on Lenox Avenue; of the poor and the lovesick; of losers in ‘the raffle of night.’ They conveyed that experience in a voice that blended the spoken with the sung, that turned poetic lines into the phrases of jazz and blues, and that ripped through the curtain separating high from popular culture. They spanned the range from the lyric to the polemic, ringing out ‘wonder and pain and terror and the marrow of the bone of life.’

  • SHORT STORIES

    This collection of forty-seven stories written between 1919 and 1963–the most comprehensive available–showcases Langston Hughes’s literary blossoming and the development of his personal and artistic concerns. Many of the stories assembled here have long been out of print, and others never before collected. These poignant, witty, angry, and deeply poetic stories demonstrate Hughes’s uncanny gift for elucidating the most vexing questions of American race relations and human nature in general.
