Though it lacks substance a little, I can't imagine a better introduction to Hughes and his poetry than this recorded lecture by the author illustrated with readings of him poems. He covers his beginning as a poet, prentice work, themes to which he returned, Harlem, and other topics and themes. It lacks the substance of a biography or survey of Hughes as a writer, but this is a wonderful way to learn if you want to know more.
