Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes. What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore-- And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over-- like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?/ The poem Harlem (A Dream Deferred) is written by African-American Poet Langston Hughes at the time of the Harlem Renaissance. The poet talks about a dream which is deferred or delayed. The dream is that of equality and freedom for the African-Americans who have been discriminated against on the basis of their color in America for ages. A Dream Deferred is an honest, courageous look at the perplexing dilemma of race and democracy in the United States-and what we might do to resolve it.
