Book Review – The Dream Keeper and Other Poems by Langston Hughes

The Dream Keeper and Other PoemsThe Dream Keeper and Other Poems by Langston Hughes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Langston Hughes may have intended The Dream Keeper and Other Poems to be a collection of poetry for younger readers but for all their simplicity and accessibility, the poems in this collection are lovely, lyrical, and powerful enough to resonate with poetry lovers of all ages.

Full of soul, whimsey, joy, (and a healthy dose of gospel and blues), the thing I love the most about this book is its tone of celebration, affirmation, and hope, even as it acknowledges struggles both past and present.
