In a brand new creation to the paintings, the poet and editor Kevin younger means that Hughes from this first actual second is “celebrating, critiquing, and finishing the yankee dream,” and that he manages to take Walt Whitman’s American “I” and write himself into it. we discover right here not just such classics as “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” and the good twentieth-century anthem that starts off “I, too, sing America,” but additionally the poet’s shorter lyrics and fancies, which dream simply as deeply. “Bring me all your / middle melodies,” the younger Hughes bargains, “That i'll wrap them / In a blue cloud-cloth / clear of the too-rough arms / Of the world.”
