  • In both poems, Hughes uses imagery to invoke powerful emotions and create vivid images. In the poem “Dream Variations”, Hughes paints a dreamlike scene of a man dreaming of a future of contentment and joy, with his use of words like “glimmering skylight/snowy sleep” and “Purple streamers from far space darting and quivering.” In the poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers”, Hughes employs imagery to evoke the long and proud history of African Americans, by visualizing their ancient ties to rivers—“I’ve known rivers: ancient, dusky rivers”—as well as their strength and endurance—“My soul has grown deep like the rivers.”
