About this show

In pursuit of a major literary sensation, two obsessive modern-day scholars piece together the volatile and passionate events that took place centuries earlier. Set in a sprawling English country house, Arcadia moves between the 19th century and the present through a series of love stories, as characters from both eras discover connections, unearth mysteries, and unravel hidden truths about the nature of heat and desire. Filled with gorgeous language--and brimming with romance--Arcadia is "the perfect blend of brains and emotion, wit and heartache" (The New York Times).
