Abstract: The post-modern novel WittgensteinsMistress by David Markson (1988) presentsthe reader with a very challengingnon-linear narrative, that itself appears toone of the novels themes. 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.
