With a new introduction by the multi-prizewinning young poet Kayo Chingonyi. For over forty years, until his death in 1967, Langston Hughes captured in his poetry the lives of black people in the USA. This edition is Hughes’s own selection of his work, and was first published in 1959. It includes all of his best known poems including ‘The Negro Speaks of Rivers’, ‘The Weary Blues’, ‘Song for Billie Holiday’, ‘Black Maria’, ‘Magnolia Flowers’, ‘Lunch in a Jim Crow Car’ and ‘Montage of a Dream Deferred’. A key figure in the Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes is now seen as one of the great chroniclers of black American experience – and one of the great artists of the twentieth century.
