Langston Hughes's About

[]

James Mercer Langston Hughes is regarded as one of the most important contributions to the Harlem Renaissance's artistic domain. Hughes was an African-American poet and writer by profession. He conveyed stories about the sorrows and lives of black people through his wonderful literary masterpieces. Hughes' writings came as a welcome respite to those who could hardly read and lacked luxurious knowledge during the 1920s, when writers opted to stream their substance, making their compositions only suitable for the highly knowledgeable. His poetry was straightforward and frequently addressed to the African-American community. He was particularly fond of jazz music. In fact, he pioneered a totally new kind of American poetry known as jazz poetry. He moved on to write short stories, plays, and editorials after gaining recognition for his work. Later in his career, it was his fearless ability to articulate the black experience in all of its honesty that garnered him a lot of admiration. His essays substantially boosted the spirit of black people who were oppressed by prejudice. His notable piece, When Harlem Was in Vogue, was praised by a number of writers.
