About the Author
Langston Hughes was born in Joplin, Missouri in 1902, and died in New York City in 1967. He devoted his life to writing and lecturing. His poetry, short stories, autobiography, song lyrics, plays, and books for young people have been widely read by Americans, and he published some thirty-five books. Arna Bontemps once called him "the original jazz poet" because so much of his verse reflects the tempo and mood of jazz and the life in which this music grew.
Mr. Hughes, who started reading his poetry to jazz in the early Forties and appeared from coast to coast with some of America's best-known jazz combinations, might well be called the father of the poetry-to-jazz movement that has taken root in this country today. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
