But for the geeky among us, C. Laprade over at In The Web Of It went a different way. He put Hamlet in – in all its different forms. Q1, Q2, F1. And then he compared the clouds. Before you look, what would you find more interesting – their similarities, or their differences? Or are they all just slices of the one whole that is Hamlet?
Reminds me a bit a project of my own 🙂UPDATE: I had an idea, and made one of my own for King Lear. Here I took just the lines of spoken text – no stage directions, and no speaking characters’ names. So if somebody said “Hey Cordelia!” that would be included, but her response would just be “What?” rather than “CORDELIA What?” See what I mean? So it gets rid of the syntax that artificially inflates whoever has the most spoken lines.
See anything interesting? I like that “father” and “know” pop out so clearly, and if you look to the left you’ll see “daughter” right there as well.
