Wow, Another Poet that I Actually Like!

Langston Hughes poem, "Theme for English B."

"Somtimes perhaps you don't want to be a part of me.
Nor do I often want to be a part of you.
But we are, that's true!
As I learn from you,
I guess you learn from me--
although you're older--and white--
and somewhat more free" (lines 34-40).

I felt that I had to type this all out so that people who randomly come to my blog which why would someone take the time to do that? so they won't be confused on what I have to say.

Hughes seems very surprised by his own statement. Earlier in the poem, the instructor says, "And let that page come out of you--then it will be true" (lines 4-5) so the fact that Hughes mentions the fact in the first quote seems... ironic? I don't know, I didn't really have anything to say anyway.

Clicky clicky...
