Let America be America again by Langston Hughes( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
World-renown poet and master of prose Langston Hughes enlightened Americans nationwide when his poem ``Let America Be America Again'' appeared in 1936. Today, more than half a century later, this poem's insights into American society and its dream of social justice continue to resonate powerfully among readers. In celebration of the poem's inspiring message, artist Antonio Frasconi illustrated Hughes's poem with thirty-two woodcuts in an extraordinary limited-edition artist's book, adding a rich visual dimension to the poet's verses. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., noted scholar and W. E. B. Du Bois Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University, contributed a foreword. A popular edition of this work, Let America Be America Again brings their important collaboration to a wider audience, faithfully reproducing the intricacy and subtlety of Frasconi's prints. Each coupling of image and stanza conveys Hughes's-and Frasconi's-dream of justice for all with compelling force. A call to fulfill this country's potential for greatness, Let America Be America Again will touch every American who reads its pages
