Présentation de l'éditeur

With the publication of his first book of poems, The Weary Blues, in 1926, Langston Hughes electrified readers and launched a renaissance in black writing in America.  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."

The poems in this collection were chosen by Hughes himself shortly before his death in 1967 and represent work from his entire career, including "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," "The Weary Blues," "Still Here," "Song for a Dark Girl," "Montage of a Dream Deferred," and "Refugee in America."  It gives us a poet of extraordinary range, directness, and stylistic virtuosity. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Biographie de l'auteur

Langston Hughes was born in Joplin, Missouri, in 1902.  After graduation from high school, he spent a year in Mexico with his father, then a year studying at Columbia University.  His first poem in a nationally known magazine was "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," which appeared in Crisis in 1921.  In 1925, he was awarded the First Prize for Poetry of the magazine Opportunity, the winning poem being "The Weary Blues," which gave its title to his first book of poems, published in 1926.  As a result of his poetry, Mr. Hughes received a scholarship at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, where he won his B.A. in 1929.  In 1943, he was awarded an honorary Litt.D. by his alma mater; he has also been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship (1935), a Rosenwald Fellowship (1940), and an American Academy of Arts and Letters Grant (1947).  From 1926 until his death in 1967, Langston Hughes devoted his time to writing and lecturing.  He wrote poetry, short stories, autobiography, song lyrics, essays, humor, and plays.  A cross section of his work was published in 1958 as The Langston Hughes Reader. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
S'inspirant du Gospel, du blues, du folk, de la poésie populaire ..., les poèmes de Langston Hughes sont riches de toutes ces influences. L'écriture est simple et sincère au service d'une poésie qui semble jaillir naturellement et à la grande musicalité.

Nombre de poèmes parlent de la condition des noirs, mais l'approche est humaine plutôt qu'ouvertement politique, et l'impact n'en est que plus fort.

La collection est divisée en plusieurs courtes sections (20 à 30 pages) regroupant des poèmes autour d'un thème particulier. Selon les thèmes, j'ai trouvé certaines parties plus intéressantes que d'autres (histoire de sensibilité personnelle).

Je ne connaissais pas vraiment Langston Hughes, et la lecture de cette anthologie fut une découverte très agréable. Je la recommande vivement aux amateurs de poésie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hughes is Pure 18 mars 2003
Par Zachary J. Manes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I had read several Hughes poems before buying this book, but I will admit that I had no grasp on the extent of his talent. These vivid poems were chosen by Hughes personally before his death in 1967.
They do so well to paint a picture of the time he lived -- of the blues, of love, of passion, of choices. He writes about faith and protest in a way that will move you.
I have read all of the poems exactly as they are placed in the book several times. I think I keep going back to them because this is poetry free of pretense -- it is grounded in reality and in sorrow.
Independent of age, of your ethnicity, and of your literary grasp, you will enjoy these poems. Simple and superb -- read them out loud.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dreams Deferred 16 juillet 2001
Par booknblueslady - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Langston Hughes wrote poetry of exquisite pain and beauty throughout his life. His poetry can be sparse and rhythmic. It evinces visions of cities, the south, churches and deep muddy rivers.
Hughes touches on every subject important to life in 20th century America: family, friends, race, religion,love, music, prejudice and poverty. Each poem sparingly provides an image in words. Together these poems represent the great work of a true artist of the American Poetry.
One of his most popular and poignant poems is Harlem. It contains such beauty in his phrase - "a dream deferred" and such power in his words or does it explode?
I recommend this highly to anyone interested in modern poets and poetry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 He, too, sang America 15 octobre 2001
Par Michael J. Mazza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Selected Poems of Langston Hughes" is a rich selection from several decades of this poet's work. Hughes (1902-1967) is a poet of many moods and voices. His work is at times mournful, humorous, sensuous, or ironic. Many poems capture the rhythms of African-American vernacular speech. A number of narrative poems tell stories of Black life, and a number of his best poems feature female speakers. He also writes poems of social protest that deal with the anti-Black violence that has plagued the United States for so much of its history.
The poems in this book are divided into several sections. One of my favorite such sections, "Feet of Jesus," contains poems which evoke the prayers, preaching, and religious songs of African-American churches. "Madam to You" contains a number of poems in which Alberta K. Johnson tells her story. A strong-willed entrepreneur who often challenges authority figures, "Madam" is one of the most delightful characters in African-American literature.
The other sections of the book contain many of Hughes' most memorable poems: the sensuous "Midnight Dancer" ("Lips / Sweet as purple dew"), "Mother to Son" ("Life for me ain't been no crystal stair"), "Theme for English B" ("I am the only colored student in my class"), and "I, Too" ("I, too, sing America. / I am the darker brother").
The lines I quoted from "I, Too" may call to mind Walt Whitman's great American poem "Leaves of Grass." Indeed, I consider Hughes to be one of the great 20th century poetic heirs of Whitman, and "Selected Poems" is a magnificent testament to Hughes' passion and vision.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beauty from Horror. 30 juin 2007
Par Una - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Langston Hughes' poems makes my knees knock. There is a little thrill with each poem, like I'm landing in a vat of buttermilk, and splashing happily about. With the subject matters he dares tackle one would think it'd be more realistic to walk away from a deluge of his work in deep depression.

Not so.

Instead I walked away with a dreamy smile and knocking knees. His ability to cull the beauty from the horror is...is...is

I'm wordless.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simple but deep poetry... inspiring! 3 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book of poetry was so fun and fast-paced that I read it all in one sitting. Some of the poems are so incredibly simple that they speak right to you and you say "hmm... that's so true", but the concept is so deep you never would have thought about it in such a simple way. Other poems are really inspiring and they will make you think a lot about them before going on to the next one.
In this Vintage Edition, the poems are grouped according to categories. For instance, "Afro-American Fragments" has a whole series of poems that speak of slavery and segregation that helped me understand even better the life of the people who overcame these tragedies, while "Lament Over Love" speaks about the pains of unrequited love that just about anyone can relate to. One of my favorite categories was "Madam to You", which is a series of poems all about one lady and what she does during her life, such as "Madam and the Rent Man" and "Madam and the Phone Bill Collector".
I was lucky to have read these poems so soon after reading The Souls of Black Folk, by W.E.B. DuBois, because it embraced the theme of double conciousness that I found there. It also showed the double conciousness of African-Americans in regard to religion, which is an important theme in DuBois' book.
While I read the book I marked the pages of the poems I liked a lot. By the time I was finished I had a huge amount of dog-eared pages marking my "favorite" spots!
I haven't read many complete books of poetry but I extremely enjoyed this one and it prompted me to read more. I recommend it for anyone, whether you're new to reading a lot of poetry at once (like me), or whether you are a poetry fanatic who for some reason have failed to get your hands on poetry by Langston Hughes yet.
