Giovanni Battista Guarini’s tragicomedy play Il pastor fido (The faithful shepherd), set in the mythical and idealised pastoral world of  Arcadia, inspired a whole generation of madrigal composers. Character names, especially those of the two lovers Amarilli and Myrtillo, even appeared widely in English madrigals.
