This paper presents a reflection on African-American poetry. The writer of this paper uses two poems, "Colored Kids at Carnival" by Langston Hughes and "On Being Brought From Africa to America" by Phyllis Wheatley, to explore themes, structure and saturation of the work.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history poets have used their works to reflect their emotions, ideas and souls. American history is still relatively young, yet filled with diversity when it comes to the path worn down by the evolvement of the nation. African American poets often capture the essence of the nation's birth and growth through the poems they write. African American poets can present a level of understanding into the human mind, heart and soul that non AA's cannot begin to describe, yet can appreciate and understand while reading the work."
