Shakespeare Searched, with Visualization Techniques—December Research Spotlight
Whether it's a kingdom for your horse, or murder most foul, Shakespeare Searched lets you search & discover in new ways, with KSL's December Research Spotlight.
Which play and which king...how many plays mentioned murder, or witches? What were some of Mark Anthony's famous lines? Find these answers, and more, with this search engine that uses visualization techniques in the results.
- Search "murder" in all plays. Results display two ways: in text, & in clusters along the left side of the page.
- Tabs for Characters, Works, or Topics show how the search term is treated by the Bard.
- Try Topics. The clusters display 10 areas, including one for "foul." Choose it, to see Hamlet and the Ghost.
- Click the link for "surrounding text" to see who the Ghost was talking to, the full speech, and a citation link for Act I, Scene 5 of one of Shakespeare's most recognizable works.
