Katharsis

A Tool for Quantitative Analysis of Plays

General information

Katharsis is a web-based tool for the quantitative analysis of plays and runs in every modern browser (e.g. Google Chrome).

Online version of the Katharsis tool

Katharsis reads TEI-formatted plays and calculates metrics for configuration information and speech statistics. Via the web-based tool users can explore visualizations per drama but also for larger drama collections concerning these metrics.

The current corpus is derived from the platform Textgrid and consists of 102 historic German plays.

Katharsis also contains a section for sentiment analysis on a sub-part of the corpus which is currently under developement and only available in German.

The data is saved via Firebase.

The Front-End is implemented as web-based application via Javascript, jQuery and Bootstrap.
