Abstract

This chapter showcases the value of several data visualization programs for textual analysis and demonstrates their benefits in considering single, complex texts. The author applies Voyant, Palladio, and Tableau to Frances Brooke’s 1769 epistolary novel, The History of Emily Montague, and explores their potential for graphic production, their usefulness when examining the temporal aspects of the novel’s epistolary structure, and their pitfalls in both research design structure and text selection. Voyant has helped the author identify specific terms used throughout the text, Palladio has created maps that highlighted geographic information, and Tableau has ordered letters by date, rather than by appearance in the text. Thus, this chapter narrates the process by which such visualizations can lead to new interpretations of the source text that are significant in themselves and/or point to new directions of analysis.
