Drawing on the poet's unpublished correspondence with contemporaries and friends like Hughes, Claude McKay, Carl Van Vechten, Dorothy West, Charles S. Johnson, and Alain Locke, and presenting a unique interpretation of his poetic gifts, And bid him sing is the first full-length critical biography of this famous American writer."--Jacket."@en
