this amazing project understanding shakespeare is worth a look… it’s a similar idea to my ‘obama inauguration speech’ project, but then on a much more thorough and analytical scale…

The goal of this approach was to provide an overview of the entire play by showing its text through a collection of the most frequently used words for each character.
A scene is represented by a block of text and scaled relatively according to its number of words. Characters are ordered by appearance from left to right throughout the play. The major character’s speeches are highlighted to illustrate their amounts of spoken words as compared to the rest of the play.
