  • When you finish, assign one person the role of the rent man and the other person the role of the madam/tenant.
  • Practice reading the poem with the appropriate tone/attitude for each part.

tone mood
  • What do you think is the Tone/Attitude that Langston Hughes used in this poem?
  • Why do you say that? Provide 2 lines/words that prove this tone.
  • What was the mood that you were in when you read it?
    • Remember, just because the tenant was angry, doesn’t mean that it’s an angry poem. How did it sound as you read it?
