"Arcadia" Volume 4
‘Arcadia’ is a 648-line rhyming, narrative poem that explores how our modern existential crisis of alienation and anxiety has been inflamed by the phenomena of 21C consumerism, mass media, instant gratification, etc, that have leaked into the god-shaped hole scooped out by secular modernity.
The five-canto poem argues that even though our symptoms are psychological, our problems are philosophical at their root, and so urges us to overcome nihilism by embracing solitude, individuality, freedom, beauty, and art.
In 2021, ‘Arcadia’ was illustrated and sold as a work of fine art at Christie’s New York, where it broke records and became the most expensive poem ever sold at $525,000. In May 2022 ‘Arcadia’ had its museum premiere at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence.
