For this month's challenge, we move from Turkey to the USA to focus on
the poems of Robert Hayden
Robert Hayden (1913 – 1980) was the first African-American writer to hold the office of Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. A few of his poems can be found on Poets.org or on PoetryFoundation.org. See also the article About Hayden's Life and Career by Mark A. Sanders, the Library of Congress (which as a few audio recordings of Hayden reading his own poems) and this edition of his Collected Poems.
What is a topic challenge?
The topic challenges were started to acquaint the users with literature they may not have been familiar with otherwise. During this month we read the book(s), and try to post questions about it (or them).
How does the topic challenge work?
Participation is not obligatory, but those who participate will be listed right here. Needless to say, questions on other books are always welcome as well - they just don't count as a part of this topic challenge.
Read the author's works, and ask questions about them! Also, don't forget to vote for the next challenge, or propose your own!
