Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debbie Levy
This attractive and cleanly designed volume in the "Writers and Their Works" series introduces readers to Langston Hughes, the era in which he lived, and Hughes' major works. The biographical portion of the book briskly narrates the poet's development as a writer during the Harlem Renaissance, as well as his political evolution—in particular, his flagging faith in American democracy and his growing admiration of Communism and the Soviet Union. A chapter summarizing the Harlem Renaissance follows the biographical material, and in turn is followed by the second part of the book, entitled "Major Works." Wallace summarizes and excerpts Hughes' poetry collections The Weary Blues and Fine Clothes to the Jew, and also discusses critical reactions to both. Of Hughes' prose works, the book provides a chapter-by-chapter plot summary of the novel Not Without Laughter; a scene-by-scene summary of the play Mule Bones, and briefly introduces Simple Speaks His Mind, a collection of stories in the voice of Hughes' popular character (Jesse B. Simple) from his newspaper column. Wallace's own prose sometimes is convoluted (in describing Hughes' high school in Cleveland, for example, he writes, "Some African-Americans also attended Central, but their numbers were far from evidencing that black students were an integral part of the rich diversity of Central's students"). Still, readers will find a great deal of information here, presented with care and admiration. Back matter includes a listing of Hughes' works, chronology, notes, and bibliography. Reviewer: Debbie Levy
School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up- Each volume contains biographical information; historical events during the subject's lifetime; and notable works with breakdowns of plot, themes and issues, analysis, symbols, and literary criticism. Both show the writer's place in literary history by comparing him to his contemporaries. What is so helpful about these books is that the authors have focused on novice researchers who usually need an idea of how to organize analytical research about a writer. Unlike Bloom's "BioCritiques" series, the language, pictures, and other references are user-friendly for younger researchers. The books are illustrated with photos and reproductions. Useful titles for circulation or for reference collections.-Lori E. Donovan, Thomas Dale High School, Chester, VA
