A dream deferred by langston hughes meaning - Dream meaning

Title - Literal Meaning, questioning about dreams. Perhaps has to do with Harlem Renaissance? Great Depression, or the Civil Rights Movement.

Paraphrase - A dream that has been forgotten, what happens to it? The possibilities are endless, and who know the truth?

Connotations - Deferred means forgotten or not thought of, a dream deferred meaning that the idea of equality is forgotten and not to be thought of by the People of America. Compares a dream to a heavy load and a dry raisin and a bad sore.

Attitude - The speaker is a black poet, possibly in the town of Harlem. The subject of the poem can be taken two ways, either somber and kind of bleak, or mysterious and hypothetical. Mysteriously sadness.

Shifts - From a nice, dry raisin to a bad, festering, sick sore to become rotten, nose-clogging, disgusting meat, then back to a nice covering of syrup over a crusty and sugary object. (Line 4-10)

Title again - Figurative meaning could have to do with black equality and the Civil Rights Movement.

Theme - The poem "Harlem" is quite repetative in its motive to express the idea of equality between all. It talks about what happens to a dream diferred, the idea of freedom that is lost forever. The poem describes this dream with bad characteristics, contributing to the overall theme to possibly mean that once something is forgotten, it is forgotten forever. Hughes uses his word choice to describe certain nouns, which bring out the disgustingness of those objects and it brings out the emphasis on what could happen to a dream diferred. He gets at the fact that there could be endless possibilities.
