Dream Deferred Analysis

What happens to a dream deferred?



Does it dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?



Or fester like a sore--

And then run?



Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over--

like a syrupy sweet?



Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.



Or does it explode?

I don\'t get why poets keep using tough and hard language to express themselves. I mean, you can just say it in two simple sentences. why bother write a whole poem and make us students study it in class and lower our grades because of them. you can say: dreams shouldn\'t be left in because they may come true. the end! Hard?

“A Dream Deferred” is a eleven line poem that uses rheological questions to ponder the nature of dreams that are put on hold.
The first line invites a response by asking what happens when a dream is put off. The alliteration in “dream deferred” draws emphasis to the fact that this is a dream and that the dream is being put off. The speaker uses rheological questions to question what happens to the dreams people put off. This draws attention of the reader and makes them slow down and think about what the speaker is talking about because there is no answer to given.

This poem is a really good poem at first I thought it was lame, but you must look deep into the poem to know what it is saying. I found a dream post poned to be a beautiful diaster.

i really liked this poem it has a question to it "what does happen tour dreams after they are over?" Hughes was a great writer. you have to know what hes talking about to know what it means, and what better way than a dream?...everyone dreams!

are you kidding? Hughes was amazing. He was an artist of words. Learn the deeper meaning and appreciate literature at its best. Thank you. PS This poem was very important in 1920's when the American dream had it's downfall and America as corrupted by racism, lack of freedom, while power and greed took over. Dreams became tasteless, lost its texture and over time lost its meaning due to such corruption.
