Visualization Of TEI Encoded Texts In Support Of Close Reading

The Poetess Archive at Miami University includes a database of electronic documents encoded using the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) schema extended with Poetess Archive tag-set, and derived from widely used terms in literary analysis and criticism. The extended TEI schemas based on the Xml standards hold elements of interest to a literary scholar, and are spread across multiple encodings.
The Xml representation of literary texts is suitable for machine processing and electronic exchange of information, but does little to promote adoption and intuitive use of these resources by scholars. We are developing a visualization tool that seeks to integrate multiple encodings while allowing comparative analysis of multiple poems encoded using the extended TEI tag-set. The proposed solution is an interactive visual representation of differently encoded versions of text that can enhance cognition, and aid in uncovering of new knowledge. This approach will facilitate identification of frequently changing hotspots in encoded text and aid in the process of close reading.
