  • In prose literature often complex dynamics of interpersonal relationships can be observed between the different characters. Traditionally, node‐link diagrams are used to depict the social network of a novel. However, static graphs can only visualize the overall social network structure but not the development of the networks over the course of the story, while dynamic graphs have the serious problem that there are many sudden changes between different portions of the overall social network.
