Summary of Countee Cullen: Collected Poems Summary of Countee Cullen: Collected Poems Reviews for Countee Cullen: Collected Poems An Excerpt from Countee Cullen: Collected Poems
A major and sometimes controversial figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Countee Cullen fused a mastery of the formal lyric with a passionate engagement with themes social, religious, racial, and personal in such books as Color, Copper Sun, and The Black Christ. Certain of his poems—“Heritage,” “Yet Do I Marvel”—are widely celebrated, but much of Cullen’s work remains to be discovered. This volume restores to print a body of work of singular intensity and beauty.

This is volume #32 in The Library of America’s American Poets Project series.
