Data-Mining Shakespeare



Folger Director Michael Witmore discusses how technology can change our understanding of literature.


 


Michael Witmore

Othello is one of Shakespeare's best-known tragedies. However, computer analysis of the play suggests that it may have more in common with Shakespeare's comedies.

 

Folger Director Michael Witmore discusses his recent work in Shakespeare studies which combines computer analysis of texts, linguistics, and traditional literary history and shares how these analyses may change our understanding of Othello while also shedding light on the deep complexity of human judgments about literary texts.
