A sample of poetry visualization

Poem Viewer is an experimental service offered by the Oxford e-Research Centre at the University of Oxford for the exploration and analysis of poetry through visualization. Poem Viewer is part of an on-going research project and is currently a work in progress. We welcome any comments, questions, or suggestions from your experience in using this tool.

Poem Viewer was created as part of the project Imagery Lens for Visualizing Text Corpora. The project explored new visualization techniques for use in large scale linguistic and literary corpora using the collections of the British National Corpus and various smaller collections of poetry. The project was funded as part of the international 'Digging Into Data Challenge', funded by the JISC in the UK, and the National Endowment of the Humanities in the USA. The project is a collaboration between the University of Utah and the University of Oxford. The principal investigators are Katharine Coles and Min Chen, with further participation from Alfie Abdul-Rahman, Chris Johnson, Julie Lein, Eamonn Maguire, Miriah Meyer, and Martin Wynne.
