the poem

I dream of the drums

And remember

Nights without stars in Africa.

Remember, remember, remember!

I dream of the drums

And remember

Slave ships, billowing sails,

The Western Ocean,

And the landing at Jamestown.

Remember, remember, remember!

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.

The Poem

St. Cyr’s bajo,

They join the drums…

Remember!

Imagery
jack london connection

In Jack London’s stories a common motif that he uses is atavism. He frequently has characters remember instincts and past lives or ancestors. In our poem Langston Hughes is talking about the memories of his ancestors and family. One example is when Buck has the dreams about his ancestor laying by the fire with the hairy man. One example of Langston Hughes ancestors memories is “the landing at Jamestown”. He did not live through this his ancestors did. Jack London and Langston Hughes share a common theme of Atavism.

atavism connection

Atavism is an evolutionary throwback. An example of atavism is when someone recalls the memories of past ancestors. In Drums Langston Hughes is writing about the memories of his past ancestors or different events that his ancestors went through.
