Books by Archibald MacLeish (Author of J.B.)A poet, playwright, lawyer, and statesman, Archibald MacLeish's roots were firmly planted in both the new and the old worlds. His father, the son of a poor shopkeeper in Glasgow, Scotland, was born in —the year of Victoria's coronation as Queen of England—and ran away first to London and then, at the age of eighteen, to Chicago. MacLeish was born in Glencoe, Illinois, in , attended Hotchkiss School from to , and from to studied at Yale University, where he edited and wrote for the Yale Literary Magazine, contributed to the Yale Review, and composed Songs for a Summer's Day, a sonnet sequence that was chosen as the University's Prize Poem in MacLeish married Ada Hitchcock in Two years later he saw service in France and published his first collection of poems, Tower of Ivory. MacLeish viewed World War I as the ending of an old world and the beginning of a new one that was sensed rather than understood. His early poetry was his attempt to understand this new world; MacLeish would later say that his education regarding this world began not in his undergraduate years at Yale, but in years after the war at Harvard Law School.
