在“我也是”的隐喻
纵观文学,比喻被用来代表思想和理念,作者试图传达给读者。这是非常在“我也是”,由兰斯顿·休斯普遍。兰斯顿·休斯生活,并在隔离和黑人法律的时候写道。在这段时间内,非裔美国人无法去同一所学校,使用相同的浴室,甚至喝同样的水喷泉为白种美国人(美国历史)出来。整个诗“我也一样,”兰斯顿·休斯用比喻来暗示他对隔离和黑人法律的感受。在诗的开篇指出:“我也一样,唱美”(休斯548)。该行表示对平等的尝试。在分离的时候,黑人法律被用来强制所有公共场所的隔离和被认为有对非裔美国人(美国历史)一个“隔离但平等”的地位。这种情况并非如此,由于这样的事实,处理和住宿往往不如非裔美国人,而不是被提供给美国白人的住宿。该行表示休斯认为,他只是作为平等的其他人一样,他‘唱’就像任何其他人在美国。 Singing is a metaphor for having a voice in the world and Hughes is explaining that his beliefs and opinions will be heard. The first stanza in the poem shows how Hughes is treated unequally. "I am the darker brother. / They send me to eat in the kitchen / When company comes, / But I laugh, / And eat well, / And grow strong" (Hughes 548). Hughes is trying to show a connection between men and in the second line of the poem it says, “I am the darker brother” (Hughes 548). This line helps to show that all men are equal except for the color of their skin. Hughes was trying to show how African Americans were treated in lines three and four which says, "They send me to eat in the kitchen/ When company comes," (Hughes 548). In the time of segregation, African Americans were not even allowed to be in the same room as white Americans. African Americans were not even allowed to enter a building or house using the front door; they had to go around back (United States History). The last four lines end the poem, as well as Hughes message. "Besides,/ They'll see how beautiful I am/ And be ashamed-,/ I, too, am America" (Hughes 548) helps to show the belief that once white people actually speak and interact with the African American people, white Americans will begin to look past the color of a person’s skin and see what a beautiful individual that person is on the inside. By white Americans getting to know African Americans as people, they will be ashamed at how they treated them. Hughes is saying that people should get the chance to look deeper into a person's soul to get to know someone before making a judgement call based on the color of their skin. This poem also addresses another point of racism, racism within one's own race. Lighter-skinned black Americans during this time period were known as “yellows” or “bronzes” and often felt superior to their "darker brother," (United States History) who didn't fit into the white society as easily as lighter-skinned black Americans. This is seen in much of Langston Hughes’ other works, along with the works of other writers likes James Baldwin. During this period, the "yellows" imagined themselves as part of the greater white community, and tried to throw away their African heritage (United States History.) Although “I, Too” is about racism, the narrator gives out a positive impact on the read, too which makes them think about how they can hope for the future. The line ''But I laugh/And eat well/And grow strong'' helps to suggests that he is getting stronger physically, but also mentally (Poets). This line helps to show that he doesn't take the slavery personally and hopes for tomorrow because he believes that slavery will be stopped. It is also about how color does not mean a thing and all people are the same. Hughes poem is somewhat reminiscent of Frederick Douglass' famous speech, "From What To A Slave Is The Fourth Of July," (The Freeman Institute) where Douglass questions and states that blacks are Americans, and should be treated equally despite the color of their skin. Hughes poem helps to open up many deep subjects, both personally and morally, for a person to think about. “I, Too” brings the question what is meant to really be an American and is the term defined by the color of one’s skin? “I, Too” is a poem that also deals with segregation and the mistreatment of black Americans. Hughes was trying to show that black Americans should be allowed to eat and interact with white Americans, and establishments should not be for "whites only." Hughes was a civil rights advocate and this poem helped to demonstrate his point of view on the subject (About Poetry). This poem is also about how Langston Hughes believes that America will unite and everyone will be a family even if they have a different skin tone. They will all be brothers and sisters and will make this country a fair and equal place to live. Hughes’ poem has helped to inspire African Americans throughout this country during the time of segregation and even to this day.
