Synopsis
Archibald MacLeish's Land of the Free was published in 1938. The book, described by MacLeish as "...the opposite of a book of poems illustrated by photographs. It is a book of photographs illustrated by a poem" includes 88 photographs by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein and Ben Shahn.MacLeish used photos from the Farm Security Administration and other agencies to accompany what he called a "sound track." The tone of this track is distress, worry, disillusionment and a sense of unease about the future of America and is exhibited in these passages:
