Between 1926, when he published his pioneering The Weary Blues, to 1967, the year of his death, when he published The Panther and the Lash, Hughes would write sixteen books of poems, two novels, seven collections of short stories, two autobiographies, five works of nonfiction, and nine childrens books- he would edit nine anthologies of poetry, folklore, short fiction, and humor.

He also translated Jaques Roumain, Nicolás Guillén, Gabriela Mistral, Federico Garcia Lorca, and write at least thirty plays. It is not surprising that Hughes was known, variously, as Shakespeare in Harlem and as the poet laureate of the American Negro.-- from the Preface by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
