Digital Victorian Periodical Poetry

Victorian readers consumed poetry largely through ephemera. The Digital Victorian Periodical Poetry project's objective is to uncover, collate, and analyze a large body of English periodical poetry from the 19th century. The project begun in 2018 will create a research database and aims to show literary change over time (e.g. rhyme innovations, types of authorship, genre trends, changes to publication practices) using digital analysis tools and presented as graphs, network maps, and other visualizations.
