From William Shakespeare and Nicolas Poussin to Martin Opitz and Salomon Geßner and Novalis, the artistic imagination was repeatedly ignited by the dream landscape of Arcadia. It was Virgil who was the first to have shepherds rest and sing in Arcadia - in reality a stretch of land in the Peloponnese - in his poems.
