About the book:

Arcadia takes us back and forth between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, ranging over the nature of truth and time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life. Focusing on the mysteriesromantic, scientific, literarythat engage the minds and hearts of characters whose passions and lives intersect across scientific planes and centuries, it is Stoppards richest, most ravishing comedy to date, a play of wit, intellect, language, brio and . . . emotion. Its like a dream of levitation: youre instantaneously aloft, soaring, banking, doing loop-the-loops and then, when you think youre about to plummet to earth, swooping to a gentle touchdown of not easily described sweetness and sorrow . . . Exhilarating (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).
