The Life of Langston Hughes, Volume 2 (1941-1967)

By: Arnold Rampersad

The second volume in this masterful biography finds Hughes rooting himself in Harlem, receiving stimulation from his rich cultural surroundings. Here he rethought his view of art and radicalism, and cultivated relationships with younger, more militant writers such as Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, and Amiri Bakara. Rampersad's Afterword to volume two looks further into his influence and how it expanded beyond the literary as a result of his love of jazz and blues, his opera and musical theater collaborations, and his participation in radio and television.
Exhaustively researched in archival collections throughout the country,  this anniversary edition will offer a new generation of readers entrance to the life and mind of one of the twentieth century's greatest artists.
