47.VI. Reading Comprehension Among the leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Countee Cullen is the writer whose role in that movement is most difficult to assess. This difficulty arises in part because his poetry emulates the style and tone of nineteenth century English Romanticism, but real complexity concerns his choice of subject matter. Cullen entered Harvard in 1925, to pursue a master in English, about the same time his collections of poems, Color, was published. Written in a careful, traditional style, the work celebrated black beauty and deplored the effects of racism. Cullen insisted on the freedom of the Black point to choose any subject: he believed that a restricted concern with race was a hindrance to the development of the Black artist, and he claimed that there is poetry written by Blacks, but not a linguistic category that could be called Black poetry. Yet he was quick to add that for the Black poet, escaping awareness of race was impossible, and Cullen was always in some way writing about being Black. By suffusing an essentially European literary tradition with race consciousness, Cullen in his own way succeeded in doing what other writers of the Harlem Renaissance were doing by experimenting with Black folk forms: making a lasting contribution to the growth of a distinctive African American voice.
