On Social Networks in Plays and Novels

Abstract : Literary works can be analysed in the framework of network theories, as proposed for instance by the Stanford Literary Laboratory, in some of their experiments. In fact, the plot of a play or a novel can be displayed as a network of interacting characters, where the timeline of the plot is projected on a planar graph. Here we discuss this approach and how it can help in highlighting some features of the literary work.
