And bid him sing a biography of Countée Cullen

"While competing with Langston Hughes for the title of 'poet laureate of Harlem, ' Countee Cullen (1903-1946) crafted poems that became touchstones for American readers, both black and white.

Drawing on the poet's unpublished correspondence with contemporaries and friends like Hughes, Claude McKay, Carl Van Vechten, Dorothy West, Charles S. Johnson, and Alain Locke, and presenting a unique interpretation of his poetic gifts, And bid him sing is the first full-length critical biography of this famous American writer."--Jacket.
