I'm glad to be back.
Today we are going to look at some of Langston Hughes' poetry. I will play each poem for you and then give you a few minutes to write your impressions in your English Journal. (Like we did when we read Walden.) Think about what the world was like when Hughes was writing these poems. Consider how his poetry reflects the times he lived in.
You need tabs for:
- Your English Journal
- The poems we will read
