The Weary Blues by Langston Hughes

The Weary BluesThe Weary Blues by Langston Hughes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is a special feeling from reading poetry in a foreign language. Poetry uses very specific vocabulary and plays with sororities that are foreign to the reader.
But, I was taken by the beauty of some of the poems in this book. Troubled Woman really moved me, Sea Calm is beautiful, Pierrot is touching. Langston Hughes brings you in his world through his poetry and you learn as much in his verses as you would in a documentary about his era.
