As the lyric voice dreams and hopes all through the poem it means this subject is fantasizing of a different world, so it is implied that the speaker lives in a time and place where equality does not exist. This is a common theme on Langston Hughes' poems, the need for equality for a better world. As it was written before the 1964 Civil Rights Act, there were a lot of segregation over the United States, and many black people were harmed and had struggles because of the racial issue.
A. is hopeful all people will experience the same freedoms he enjoys.
Below is the excerpt from "I Dream a World" by Langston Hughes.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind—
Of such I dream, my world!
The speaker in this poem actually infers that he is hopeful all people will experience the same freedoms he enjoys.
This can be seen from the concluding part of the excerpt where he said,
"Of such I dream, my world!"
This means it's actually something he is enjoying which he wants people to join - in his world.
"I Dream A World" is a poem written by Langston Hughes, an American writer of Harlem Renaissance. He made the African-Americans to have an experience of the subject of his writings.
C. lives in a time and place where equality does not exist.
In the poem the speaker is dreaming of a world where equality for all exists. He says, "Whatever race you be,/ Will share the bounties of the earth/And every man is free". Since this universal equality is in his dreams, we can infer that it does not exist in reality. The other options are wrong because the speaker doesn't indicate that he enjoys freedom, he doesn't show he is doing anything to gain freedom except dream, and the hopeful tone of the poem means he hasn't given up on equality.
It is reasonable to infer that the speaker is hopeful all people will experience the same freedoms he enjoys and that he lives in a time and place where equality does not exist.
The speaker is optimistic and since it is the speaker's dream it has not happened yet which suggests the speaker lives in a time and place where equality does not exist. The 2 inferences I disagree with are:
1. "will do whatever is necessary to gain equality for all" as there is no mention of this and he just speaks about what he would like to see happen not actually what he will do to achieve this dream.
2. "has given up the idea that one day all people will be treated the same." The speaker is positive and hopeful he even says "Of such I dream, my world!" which shows he hasn't given up the idea of equality and he would like to see his dream become a reality.
its A man we just want the letter but thanks to da person before me
