Title: Langston Hughes's Spanish Civil War verse
Author: Girón Echevarría, Luis Gustavo
Abstract: El artículo se centra en seis poemas del escritor afroamericano Langston Hughes, inpirados en la Guerra Civil española. La estancia de Hughes durante seis meses en España como corresponsal de guerra para los periódicos afroamericanos catalizó su sensibilidad poética, fruto de la cual son algunos de sus poemas de protesta social más amargos. Utilizando su pluma como arma, Hughes refleja en estos poemas vehementes y sonoros la inmediatez de la guerra y la intensidad de las emociones que suscitó.This paper focuses on six poems written by the African American writer Langston Hughes inspired by the Spanish Civil War. Hughes’s six-month stay in Spain as a war correspondent for the “Afro-American” newspapers also catalyzed his poetic sensibility, thus writing some of his most bitter poems of social protest. Taking arms with his pen, Hughes captures in these passionate and vibrant poems the immediacy of the war and the intensity of emotions it elicited.
