    human life/nature?
    Hughes’s purpose in writing this poem was to show how his Negro subject was treated but also to highlight his hopes for the future when an American was an American by birth not because of the colour of his skin or religious habits. The poem [[#_msocom_2|[DAT2]]]hree verses of unequal length with a single line top and bottom which add to the impact of the imagery framed within these two lines.

    is used?
    This could have been a poem with a very bitter tone, one of complaint without saying if or how life could be made more pleasant. Instead, the tone is one of sarcasm initially as the poet describes the failings of American society; a direct opposite to Whitman’s claimed Utopia. Then the tone changes. It becomes hopeful and shows a willingness to believe that such unpleasant aspects of life cannot, and should not, last. He shows by his tone at the beginning that he will, if necessary, ‘eat well/And grow strong’ so he can fight for his rights. But the latter parts illustrate his wish and hope that in the future (‘Tomorrow’) he will not need to fight as society will become ‘ashamed’ and see (how) ‘beautiful’ (he) is and behave like the Christians they claim to be and treat all men as equal.
    ...
    for example
    A key word in all of this is ‘America’. If Whitman’s America was immigrants, workers, farmers, housewives and carpenters, then Hughes’s America is the same but with an additional, less pleasant part. This is the ‘hidden’ America, where former slaves and their descendents are sent to the kitchen whenever ‘company comes’. Most Americans in the early days regarded their society as a ‘melting pot’ where ALL immigrants, regardless of country of origin went into a pot and the result was America, a multinational (but not multiracial) society proud of its immigrant roots and working together for the American Dream. But again, in an image that confirms Hughes’s views, this pot was white in colour, ignoring Negro saes, Chinese labourers and the aboriginal inhabitants. Nowadays the term ‘salad bowl’ is used to denote an America of equal but different parts, multicultural, multiracial and multicoloured. Hughes’s poem had an impact on the way his 1930s society regarded itself and also leads to a deeper understanding and knowledge of how America changed over the years.
    ...
    or simile.
    Another technique used in the poem is contrast. All well written poetry has contrast and this poem has several examples within. The main contrast that portrays the image of a divided society, and the hidden less pleasant aspects of it is a physical one. Black people are hidden away when white people come to visit; they are treated differently. The author describes segregation where he is sent away or hidden when ‘company comes’ and he is not allowed to share in the conversation, food and company that sitting at the table entails. Another contrast is in the tone used to show the subject’s attitude. He will go to the kitchen but he will also ‘eat well/And grow strong’ so that in the future ‘Tomorrow’ ‘Nobody’ll dare’ send him away. He also expresses his hope that the way Christians behave towards him now will contrast with the way they treat him in future when they are ‘ashamed’ and will follow their teachings by treating all races equally. Also within the poem there is a more philosophical contrast between the white masters and their ‘darker brothers’ who are symbolic to the whites of an evil individual not a brother at all. This contrast shows an image of a fight between white and black, good and evil, dark and light.
    ...
    the question.
    In conclusion, this poem has an impact because it reminds us that America (and society worldwide) is not a truly perfect one. There will always be hidden groups who are hiding for protection (Jews for example) or because their society refuses to accept them (gays in Iran). My own knowledge and understanding of these less pleasant aspects of life and society in general has been improved as the poem’s impact forces me to consider and thus remember that there are unpleasant things going on in life. It reminds us that we should all strive to remove this unpleasantness and Hughes’s poem shows us that if we hope for change, eventually it will come to pass. This short poem had a significant impact at the time of writing and resonates even today a century later.

Blacks had very few rightsjackass and privileges in society dueif u want to the color of their skin.
    that nigga be staight trippin on some fake ass gangsta shit
    In this poem Hughes is a servant that works for a white man
    know who sends him into the kitchen when company comes. The narrator just laughs it off every time hei am my name is sent away. He laughs because he knows that he is strongjulius and beautiful inside no matter what they say or do. The narrator uses metaphor when he says "tomorrow". "Tomorrow" indicates the future. He believes that eventually in the future everyone will become equal. No matter what the colour of your skin you won’t be any less or any more than anybody else. He thinks that when the white man realizes how beautiful the black man is they will be ashamed that they didn’t realize the beauty sooner. The title of this poem I, Too, Sing America has special meaning. By using this title Hughes is tryingi go to explain what makes up America. Doing so he explains that everyone in America is an American. No matter the color of your skin, your religion, etc. everyone is an American.
    This poem is in response to Walt Whitman's poem "I Hear America Singing", in which he speaks of how happy everyone in America is
    oxford high school and how life is perfect. Hughes wrote this to say that no, life is not perfect, especially for black people.
    When he says "I
    am the darker brother" (Hughes line 2) It is symbolic and connotative language. It is connotative language because, not only do you thinkpart of black people, but also of evil. So he is calling himself evil almost. But not in the way you would think, but it the way that he is ruining Whitman's imageclass of America.
    Another important point is when he says "I'll be at the table" (Hughes line 9). This shows how he wants to be a part of society, that he has something to say, because when people come to a table it is to exchange thoughts, ideas, and just overall enjoy company. But he has been denied
    2015 sorry hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha suck i i got my info from this because of him being sentpage to the kitchen when guests come over. So he is almost threatening them that he will stay and give them a piece of his mind. IT was gabage
    bad u cant get yours loser
