Langston Hughes cited Walt Whitman as one of his greatest influences, and some believe that Hughes wrote “I, Too, Sing America” in response to Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing.” Using textual evidence from both poems to support your answer, describe how Hughes’s poem builds on Whitman’s poem. Consider aspects such as structure, theme, word choice, etc., as you craft your response.
