Note: About the Author

Langston Hughes (1902--1967):

      modern American black poet and writer, was born in Joplin, Missouri  on February 1, 1902 and died on May 22, 1967 in New York City. He worked at a variety of jobs and lived in several countries, including Mexico and France, before Vachel Lindsay discovered his poetry in 1925. The publication of The Weary Blues (1926), his first volume of poetry, enabled Hughes to attend Lincoln  University in Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1929. His writing is largely concerned with depicting American Negro life, particularly the experience of the urban Negro. "Salvation" is taken from his autobiography, The Big Sea (1940).


兰斯顿 休斯 (1902--1967)

       美国现代黑人诗人及作家,1902年2月1日出生于密苏里州的乔普林,1967年5月22日在纽约市逝世。在1925年维奇 林赛发现了他的诗歌前,他从事过各种工作,在许多国家生活过,包括墨西哥,法国。休斯第一本诗集,《疲惫的布鲁斯》(1926)的出版,使他能够去位于宾夕法尼亚州的林肯大学读书,并于1929年从那儿毕业。 他的作品大多数都是与描述美国黑人的生活,尤其是城市黑人的经历有关。“救赎”这篇文章就是选自他的自传,《大海》(1940)。

      

      Apart from what is said in Notes to the Text, mention needs to be made of the Harlem Renaissance, out of which such eminent literary figures as Langston Hughes grew. Beginning from 1910, large numbers of American blacks moved from the rural South to the industrial northern cities in search of work, and many settled in Harlem, a district in the northeast part of New York City, which consequently became one of the largest black communities in the U.S. In the 1920s, urged by the idea of racial pride, black writers, many living in Harlem, began to produce fine original works about black life, turning Harlem into a center of art and literature. The Harlem Renaissance is thus a term given to the flowering of black American literature of this period. Langston Hughes, who opened the way for realism in black American literature, is the most accomplished of the writers whose names have been associated with the Renaissance.

  

除了课文注释中说的那些以外,还有个必须提及的,就是“哈莱姆文艺复兴”,许多像兰斯顿 休斯这样的杰出文人就是在这个时期出现的。从1910年起,大量的美国黑人从南部乡村迁移到北部的工业化城市来找工作,并且许多人都定居在位于纽约东北部的哈莱姆区,因此这里也成为了美国最大的黑人社区。在19世纪20年代,因为受到种族优越感观点的驱策,许多居住在哈莱姆的黑人作家开始创作关于黑人生活的早期作品,使哈莱姆成为了艺术和文学的中心。哈莱姆文艺复兴就是美国黑人文学在这个时期的绽放。兰斯顿 休斯是这些文艺复兴中的作家里最有才华的一位,他开启了美国黑人文学中,写实主义的先河。
