Spring in New Hampshire and other poems by Claude McKay( Book )

11 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claude McKay's third collection of verse, Spring in New Hampshire and Other Poems, is most notable for providing the poem which would become the title of his later collection, Harlem Shadows.  The poem "Harlem Shadows" symbolically parallels the demeaningly poor social plight of black prostitutes in Harlem with that of the black race at that time. Unlike his earlier works, Spring in New Hampshire and Other Poems does not contain works in his native Jamaican dialect
