CONSTRUCTIONS OF ARCADIA Pan and Sylvane inhabit this estate, together with less classical forms of entertainment provided for the lord and lady by nature: Nor are the Muses strangers found: The rout of rurall folke come thronging in, (Their rudeness then is thought no sinne) Thy noblest spouse affords them welcome grace. That grace which is so ‘natural’ to the aristocracy even extends to ‘thinking’ that the rudeness of rural folk is no sin. In Jonson’s time and social position there is no more radical form of generosity possible.

What wooll my sheepe shall beare, whyle thus they live, In you it is, you must the judgement give. The direct address to the reader invites an objective judgement on the metaphorical ‘wooll’: the insights gained by this labour on the ‘faire hilles’ of Sidney’s Arcadia. The assumption is that the reader recognises the complicated distancing frame by which this Arcadia is constructed. Sydney has first imagined himself as a courtier, a ‘master’, in earlier times and then dons the ‘shepheard’s weedes’ of classical pastoral.

Here MacNeice uses the original pastoral form for an anti-pastoral purpose. But for most classical Latin writers the poetry of an Arcadian Golden Age was located in a primordial past in which human anxieties had not yet surfaced. Having disappeared during the Dark Ages, Arcadia resurfaced in the Italian Renaissance in Jacopo Sannazaro’s poem Arcadia, first published in Venice in 1502. His utopian Arcadia is described by Erwin Panofsky as ‘a realm irretrievably lost, seen through a veil of reminiscent melancholy’ (Panofsky 1970: 349).
