This shortcoming, characterized by Kenneth Dover (Dover, 1980) is still existent and is unlikely to be corrected quickly by traditional research techniques. Textual reuse plays an(More)
In this paper, we present various visualizations for the Text Re-use found between texts of a collection to support humanists in answering a broad palette of research questions. When juxtaposing all texts of a corpus in the form of tuples, we propose the Text Re-use Grid as a distant reading method that emphasizes text tuples with systematic or repetitive(More)
