about this book

In The Panther and the Lash, his last collection of verse, Hughes's voice is more pointed than ever as he explicitly addresses the racial politics of the sixties in such pieces as "Prime," "Motto," "Dream Deferred," "Frederick Douglass: 1817-1895," and "Daybreak in Alabama," and many other moving poems. Sometimes ironic, sometimes bitter, always powerful, these poems are the last testament of a great American writer grappling fearlessly and artfully with the most compelling issues of his time.
