Le drame comme réseau de relations : une application de l'analyse automatisée pour l'histoire littéraire du théâtre

Abstract : As of late, the network analysis of literary texts has grown into an independent research field of digital literary studies. Since analysing the network structure of single texts promises just marginal results, the perspective should shift to a 'distant reading' of hundreds or thousands of texts. In this paper, we describe how the process of formalising literary data is facilitated by machine-readable corpora comprising hundreds of dramatic texts in several languages. Taking a corpus of roughly 500 German-language dramas as an example, we demonstrate how the calculation of network metrics and visualisations can deliver new material for interpretation and offer new insights into the evolution of drama.
