We present adistant reading of this work designed tocomplement a close reading of it by DavidFoster Wallace (1990). Using a combinationof text analysis, entity recognition andnetworks, we plot repetitive structures inthe novels narrative relating them to itscritical analysis.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Association for Computational Linguistics||Copyright (published version):||2017 ACL||Keywords:||Wittgenstein's Mistress; Literary analysis; Data analytics||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of the Joint SIGHUM Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, Humanities and Literature||Conference Details:||ACL Joint SIGHUM Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Cultural Heritage, Vancouver, Canada, 04 August 2017|
