Form[ edit ] Arcadia by Sannazaro could be considered a prosimetrum — a combination of prose and verse. The alternation of prose and verse is consistent, but each varies considerably. Many portions of the prose are merely descriptive. Others sections, especially in the second half of the poem, are more narrative.

Like the prose, the poetry is varied with a number of different poetical forms, including frottola , barzelletta , madrigal , and canzona. Publication history[ edit ] The publication history of Arcadia has two phases. The first follows the tradition of manuscripts consisting of an introduction "proemio" and ten units in prose and verse. Initially this literary collection was called Aeglogarum liber Arcadium inscriptus then Sannazaro decided to change the name to Libro pastorale nominato intitulato Arcadio.

Some years later Sannazaro modified the whole Arcadia again. The title became simply Arcadia and now consisted of a dedication, an introduction, twelve units of prose and verse, and an epilogue A la Zampogna — To the bagpipes.

The first version of Arcadia with introduction and the ten units of prose and verse was completed towards the end of A flawed version was published in Venice in without the approval of the author. The same edition was reprinted by Bernardino da Vercelli in The second edition was completed by Sannazaro around This last version was published by Pietro Summonte , who was a humanist and member of the Accademia Pontaniana , in Naples in Style[ edit ] The early fame of Arcadia in Italy was due to its linguistic merits.

Its style created a completely artificial literary idiom, unspoken by either Florentines or Neapolitans. Reception[ edit ] When Arcadia was printed in the 16th century, it became a bestseller. Modern readers tend to consider the text confused and frustrating.
