9780060798895: Langston Hughes: American Poet

One of the greatest American poets of the twentieth century, Langston Hughes influenced many writers -- including Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker. In this moving and richly detailed portrait, she celebrates the life of the man who fell in love with books at a young age and grew up to write about Black people as he saw them: happy, mad, sad, and beautiful. Illustrated with stunning paintings by Catherine Deeter, this book will introduce a whole new generation to the life and works of an extraordinary man.
