生于密苏里州乔普林 (Joplin) 的蓝斯顿休斯是两位簿记人员的儿子。他的父母在他还小时就已离异,父亲搬到了墨西哥,而他的母亲则为了找寻安定的工作而离开他很久。休斯则由住在堪萨斯州罗伦斯的祖母负责养育。12岁时,休斯就搬到伊利诺州与他的母亲与继父同住。稍后又举家搬到俄亥俄州。由于出身卑微,蓝斯顿很喜欢这些他称为「低下阶层」的贫穷人们,他认为他们拥有强烈的情感及自尊心。您认为休斯会如何表达这些感受?

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?
