Poetry from Harlem Renaissance

Jennifer, Litzy, Roxana


Devoted to the examples of John Keats and Edna St.Vincent Millay, Cullen considered the Anglo-American poetic heritage to belong as much to him as to any white American of his age. In contrast, Langston Hughes famously announced in his manifesto The Negro Artist and the Racial mountain (1926) that black poets should create a distinctive “Negro”art.

Hughes, Langston was born on February 1, 1902 and he died on May 22, 1967. Hughes (1902-1967) was an African author best known for his poetry. He is experimented with the poetic by only using the rhythm of Jazz and Blues music in his verses. Hughes wrote sketches, books and plays about simple for 20 years. Hughes wrote or edited more than 50 books. He graduated from Lincoln university in Pennsylvania.

Fisher, Rudolph (1897-1934), an African American author, was a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance. This important movement in African American literature and other acts flourished during the 1920’s and 1930’s in the Harlem district of New York city. Fisher wrote several short stories and two novels. He first gamed recognition with his short story “the city of refuge” (1925), about life in Harlem.
