Because the Academy had a secondary interest in cultural reform, this eloquence was also viewed by some members as seminal to the development of the notion of a public good. The Arcadians targeted theater as the mechanism by which the reform could be modeled to large numbers of people. The book explores the Arcadian fascination with all aspects of theater."--Jacket." ;
