 1,295

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.
