An analysis of Tolkien's books
An Interactive Analysis
of Tolkien's works
the Silmarillion, the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings
Being passionate about both Tolkien and data visualization creating an interactive analysis of Tolkien's books seemed like a wonderful idea. To the left you will be able to explore character mentions and keyword frequency as well as sentiment analysis of the Silmarillion, the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. Information on editions of the books and methods used can be found in the about section.
A note on Copyright
The information on this site is non-expressive (does not contain narrative prose from the books) and has been derived without copying the entire works but only indexing them. Together with the fact that this site generates no money it is my belief that this is fair use. The indexing has also been done so that the character mentions and words can only be tied to a page and not a sentence or paragraph. This makes it impossible to reconstruct the books only from the information in the database.
