Digital Humanities: Blurring Shakespeare with Help from JSTOR Labs (To Quote or Not to Quote)
Derek Miller’s project, To Quote or Not to Quote, features all of the Bard’s plays, but actors won’t be using it to memorize their lines. The professor of theater history at Harvard University has created a clear–yet blurry–visualization of how we cite the works of William Shakespeare. Using an API built by JSTOR Labs to calculate the number of times every line from every play has been cited in JSTOR, Miller makes the text look fuzzier the less often it is mentioned.
