Homework Help: English

Posted by Carrie on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 at 8:26pm.

My teacher asked us to write a poem in the style of Langston Hughes' poem Theme for English B, and I don't see a style.

I reread several of Hughes' poems. He used short lines and short words. Some had rhyme schemes, but many did not. He also wrote about the plight of and discrimination against African-Americans. I suggest you use this topic and write a poem with short lines and short, direct words.

Thank you
