Event Description

Full Description:
Shakespeare and statistics is not an obvious pairing, but digital texts of his plays and poems are now widely available, and scholars are getting used to analysing them with computers. This lecture will reflect on what we have learned from these studies.
The best-known findings are about authorship. The 2016 New Oxford Shakespeare relies heavily on quantitative work and includes forty-two plays rather than the usual thirty-eight, and at the same time advances the idea of Shakespeare as a collaborator as well as a sole author.
