The Weary Blues – Poetry Video Comparison (By Arindam & Jordan)



good evening tonight mr. Langston Hughes American poet dramatist novelist lyricist Langston Hughes uses a consistent AAA b CC rhyme scheme throughout the weary blues in other words a regular AABB pattern of tune and croon the night and light are intercepted by I heard a Negro play those intermediate sentences following the first rhyme represent a type of aside from the main story these pauses are separate back and forth with their own structure and separate style from the main idea and it's when he told the four of us to let him have those seats to the tune of those weary blues with anemone hands on each ivory key he made that poor Fionna moan with melody Oh blue playing to and fro on his rickety stool he played that sad raggy tune like a musical fool sweet blues coming from a black man so in a deep song boys with a melancholy tone I heard that Negro sing that old Fionna moan ain't got nobody in all this world ain't got nobody but myself I'd wanna quit my frowning and put my troubles on the shell thump-thump when he's put on the floor he played a few cards and he sang some more I got to wearing blues I can't be satisfied got the weary blues ain't happy no more and I wish far into the night moon that tune the stars went out so did the moon the singer stop playing and went to bed while the weary blues I could through his head he slept like a rock or a man that's dead it's important to note not only the intended audience but also the error links & Hues resides and how both of those play a part in a production of works like the weary blues struck in the Harlem Renaissance Langston Hughes writes in his position as a man of color during a saga of horrid and justices like the Jim Crow South through the weary blues doesn't directly address racial prejudice head-on other works such as I too directly address the duality of living America in America in the 20s I too was filled with the controversial discussion of equality or lack thereof however Hughes writes with a very similar motif as he did in the weary blues furthermore both passages toggle similar elements to appear to Hughes Intendant audience Hughes is consistently aware of the effect of his words as he pens and deliberately places them to regulate the intensity of the scene he is creating for example in a line there see how beautiful I am from I to shows the emotional rhetoric to stress the shift in his tone and direction well the weary blues contains such vernacular in almost every line in both cases Hughes utilizes diction as a main way to represent the severity of his poems varying the amount of the scripted terminology based on a significance of the poem itself in other words since the Harlem Renaissance is undergoing a huge influx during the writing of the weary blues he's possibly realized the audience would relate the feeling of dread with the dread of the african-american community during the 20s and leave room for imagination and his poem void of redundancy
