Summary
"One of the greatest American writers, Langston Hughes was an innovator of jazz poetry and a leader of the Harlem Renaissance whose poems and plays resonate widely today. Accessible, personal, and inspirational, Hughes's poems portray the African American community in struggle in the context of a turbulent modern United States and a rising black freedom movement. This invaluable collection of newly published letters between Hughes and four confidantes sheds light on his life and politics. Letters from Langston begins in 1930 and ends shortly before his death in 1967, providing a window into a unique, self-created world where Hughes lived at ease. This distinctive volume of correspondence patches together stories of friends and family living in an era of uncertainty and their visions of an idealized world--one without hunger, war, racism, and class oppression"--Provided by publisher
