DESCRIPTION

Computationally-based distance analysis of the Spanish sonnets of the Golden Age (16th and 17th centuries). Analysis of rhythmic-metrical aspects and semantics (topics) via techniques of natural language processing and text mining (topic modeling). Creation and semi-automated annotation of a broad, representative corpus of sonnets. Development of an automated metrical scansion system to annotate sonnet metrics. Final specification of general traits of the metrics and semantics of Golden Age Spanish sonnets.
