Pat Lockley of Oxford University Computing Services was inspired by his discovery of Thomas Middleton, and created two wonderful collections of resources: The Science of Middleton and the Science of Shakespeare.
These pictures and movies illustrate in a fun and interactive way things like:
- The number of lines for which given characters interact
- Who talks when and to whom in Middleton’s plays
- Lengths of individual speeches
- Pie charts illustrating the size of different roles
