America Was Promises was the last of MacLeish's longer poems of the 1930s. Grover Smith called it "the most eloquent of the 'public' poems . . . much better as a poem than as a message." It "combines geographic evocations with a quasi-allegorical, populist history of Jefferson and Man, Adams and the Aristocracy, Paine and the People."
