Publisher Statement

Digital Humanities for Literary Studies introduces readers to an intuitive range of computer-assisted methods and techniques suited to literary criticism. It describes a selection of the most popular approaches currently being applied by digital humanities scholars, providing both a technical explanation of these methodologies as well as a guide to key theoretical considerations.

This edition includes the theoretical underpinnings necessary to understand the fundamentals and purpose of a particular methodology, while each chapter links to a companion website with supplementary materials intended to help readers apply techniques to their own research.

Digital Humanities for Literary Studies equips readers with a stronger understanding of how computation can assist in literary criticism. It offers a critical and practical overview of the technical and literary considerations involved in digital humanities approaches to literature, a survey of the tools used, and examples of how one might go about conducting text analysis with computers.

Comprised of contributions from some of the pioneers of digital humanities, this essential new resource sheds light on the ways in which the digital humanities can be used to compel, interpret, and re-examine ways of reading. -- publisher
