The author examines how Hughes' works reflected African-American experiences and culture, but that his personal life and political beliefs seemed to limit his writings. The writer also discusses two poems, "One More 'S' in the USA" and "Good Morning Revolution", attempting to show how Hughes felt about social and political injustices and his sympathies with the working class.
From the Paper:"Hughes has earned a place amongst the greatest poets America has ever produced, but his politics and an inaccurate reputation for being a Communist place a limit on the amount of his works that are included in many anthologies."
