Langston Hughes
A Bibliographic Essay
Dolan Hubbard

Throughout four decades of literary creativity that are virtually unrivaled in American letters, Langston Hughes wrote in a diversity of genres—poetry, drama, autobiography, history, fiction, prose comedy, juvenile literature, newspaper columns, librettos—and assembled anthologies, perfected the black gospel song-play, and collaborated on translations. Hughes wrote more than fifty books with one central purpose: “to explain and illuminate, ” in his words, “the Negro condition in America” (qtd. in Emanuel and Gross, Dark Symphony 1968: 191).
