Atavism

By: Kayleigh Davis, Kaylee Hannah, Autumn Morrison

title
Title
  • The title is: Drums

-Langston Hughes

figurative language
Figurative Language
  • …”I dream of drums/ and recall like a picture/ Congo square in New Orleans-/ Sunday- the slaves’ one day of ‘freedom’-/ the juba-dance in Congo square
imagery
Imagery
  • ”…Nights without stars in Africa…”
  • “…Billowing sails…”
  • “Congo square in new Orleans”
  • “Jelly Roll’s piano Buddy Bolden's Trumpet,/ Kid Ory’s trombone/ St. Cyr’s banjo, they join the drums and I remember.”
sound devices
Sound devices
  • Repetition of the word “remember” and “I dream of drums”
  • Alliteration for “I DREAM OF DRUMS,”
slide6
Mood
  • The mood could be joyful (for the slaves) at some points because Hughes wrote “Sunday- the slaves’ one day of ‘freedom’/ The juba-dance in the square”
  • The mood could also be viewed peaceful at times because Langston Hughes wrote “Jazz!”. Jazz isn’t usually seen as a “bad” thing/sound and is often peaceful.
message
Message
  • I think the message of the poem is Hughes “remembering” his ancestors and how sacred drums were to them also what they were going through.
prediction
Prediction
  • This poem might have something to do with the “call of the wild” because in Call of the wild one of the characters tells a story of his ancestors just like Langston Hughes .
