Langston Hughes was one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. He was born in Joplin, Missouri, and moved to Cleveland at the
age of fourteen. Several years later he spent one year in Mexico before attending Columbia University in New York. For a few 5 years after that he
roamed the world as a seaman, visiting ports around the world and writing some poetry. He returned to the United States and attended Lincoln
University, where he won the Witter Bynner Prize for undergraduate poetry. After graduating in 1928, he traveled to Spain and to Russia with the
help of a Guggenheim fellowship.
10 His novels include Not Without Laughter (1930) and The Big Sea (1940). He wrote an autobiography in 1956 and also published several
collections of poetry. The collections include The Weary Blues (1926), The Dream Keeper (1932), Shakespeare in Harlem(1942), Fields of
Wonder (1947), One Way 15 Ticket (1947), and Selected Poems(1959). A man of many talents, Hughes was also a lyricist, librettist, and a
journalist. As an older man in the 1960s he spent much of his time collecting poems from Africa and from African-Americans to popularize black
writers. Hughes is one of the most accomplished writers in American 20 literary history, and he is seen as one of the artistic leaders of the Harlem
Renaissance, the period when a neighborhood that was predominantly black produced a flood of great literature, music, and other art forms
depicting daily city life for African-Americans.
