Langston Hughes

It seems to me that Langston Hughes’ poetry is somewhat confusing but at the same time when he understands it, he transmits many things and many ideas that for some people may be somewhat debatable. I believe that this type of poetry addresses very important and significant issues in today’s society, such as racism, discrimination, among others. In the poems he presents us with different types of situations about these issues where erroneous behaviors are shown and where he expresses his desire that it not be that way. I feel that the author manages to sympathize a lot with the people who read it because he uses very relevant situations and that each person has their opinion in a different way.

I think the author has a very peculiar way of writing which makes it somewhat difficult to understand. I also feel that his verses don’t have much musicality, however his frustration is noticeable in them.
