‘La Arcadia’, portrayed by Lope de Vega and many other artists, works as an ideal and strange Kingdom, protected from conflicts thanks to distance. An uncorrupted (imagined?) space in which happiness, simplicity and peace reign, and in which people debate love without suffer.
‘La Arcadia’ as a place without pain and without risk thanks to the aseptic, as the controlled and the absence of true contact with life.
But, as Slavoj Žižek says, every encounter has a necessary imbalance, and the love that protects itself from the fall of the uncertainty is nothing more than a replacement for love.
Or as Lope says, love is a unique substitute.
