Words in Poems

Note on the Gephi Visualization:

Below is a model of repeated words and strands across the 31 poems that make up the volume Sight and Song.  Poem titles form a ring outside of these repetitions and appear in clockwise order.  Repeated words, phrases, or cluster of words compose the center of the model. Finally, text size as well as the size of the node correlate to the increased number of connections within the graph.  The center words and phrases represent what we (Christman, Jarman, Kersh) saw as the most frequent and important words and ideas repeating across the 31 poems.
