I’d like you to closely read “Let America be America Again” (Links to an external site.) by Langston Hughes and provide an original response to the poem. In your response, I’d like you to consider denotation (the dictionary definition of a word), connotation (the associations one brings to a word), and tone (the speaker’s attitude toward the subject matter). What words in particular help convey a sense of determination in the struggle for freedom and equality? What role does repetition play in the poem? How about the use of parentheses?
