FIELDS OF WONDER

Langston Hughes' Fields Of Wonder is a new volume of poems in which there is a slight, fragile, nostalgic charm. Hughes has worked out his own method of shortline versification; he is definitely a lyric poet, something rare in this day; but he lacks real skill or strength; the perfume of his Fields Of Wonder is faint. Those interested in the development of Negro poetry will read this as a part of the Negro contribution, but scarcely for itself.
