生於密蘇里州喬普林 (Joplin) 的藍斯頓休斯是兩位簿記人員的兒子。他的父母在他還小時就已離異,父親搬到了墨西哥,而他的母親則為了找尋安定的工作而離開他很久。休斯則由住在堪薩斯州羅倫斯的祖母負責養育。12歲時,休斯就搬到伊利諾州與他的母親與繼父同住。稍後又舉家搬到俄亥俄州。由於出身卑微,藍斯頓很喜歡這些他稱為「低下階層」的貧窮人們,他認為他們擁有強烈的情感及自尊心。您認為休斯會如何表達這些感受?

Langston Hughes was born in Joplin, Missouri to two bookkeepers. His parents separated when he was very young. His father moved to Mexico, and his mother left him for long periods of time in search of steady employment. Hughes's grandmother raised him in Lawrence, Kansas, until he was 12, when he moved to Illinois to live with his mother and stepfather. The family later moved to Ohio. From these humble origins, Langston developed a deep admiration for those he called "low-down folks," poor people who had a strong sense of emotion and pride. How do you think Hughes expressed these feelings?
