    First you need to punctuate it correctly so you can tell what the parts of speech are.

    Langston Hughes, who lived from 1902 to 1967, read works by the great twentieth century midwestern poets (Vachel Lindsay, Edgar Lee Masters and Carl Sandburg) and used their influence in writing his own poetry.

    Here are a couple of good sites:

    First, nouns are the names of persons, places and things. Pull them out and put them in one list. Be sure to put an N over them as you do so.
    Then find the verbs - put them on a second list and put V over them in the sentence.
    Next you want to find the noun modifiers.

    After you have gone through the sentence, if you still have questions, please repost and we will be glad to make corrections or suggestions.
