Langston Hughes Essay
The image of a moment when the Juice and life of the dream vanishes, sucked away and crumpled proposes a negative aspect to the forgotten dream.I feel as though Hughes is placing a metaphorical timeline on a dream that has Just been developed.As a fan of Langston Hughes I believe the poem is meant to create a positive image about creating a dream and pursuing that dream until it becomes reality.
In a sense the dream could begin to rot in the person’s ind or heart, which would cause them to become ill, or the rotting dream could begin to create a stench that refuses to be ignored.
The speaker implies that if the dream does not begin to rot it could “crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet.
I thought this line was a very important piece of the poem because it imposes the thought of the forgotten dream forming a solid crust around it as if it was a protective shell.
I constantly find myself thinking of what I could have accomplished had I been provided with some consistency and security in life.
I have always wanted to be a wealthy businessman due to the fact that I enjoy finance nd because I love working with people.
