The Life of Langston Hughes. 2 Volumes: 1902-1941, I, Too, Sing America; Volume II 1941-1967 I Dream a World.
by [Harlem Renaissance] Rampersad, Arnold.

Publisher Information:
Oxford University Press, New York: 1986.

Both Volumes are First Printings. Both volumes are Fine copies in Fine unclipped dust jackets. Hughes, who claimed Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman as his primary influences, is particularly known for his insightful, colorful portrayals of black life in America from the twenties through the sixties. He wrote novels, short stories and plays, as well as poetry, and is also known for his engagement with the world of jazz and the influence it had on his writing, as in Montage of a Dream Deferred. His life and work were enormously important in shaping the artistic contributions of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
