Project: Tempest Charted

My project is to recodify Shakespeare’s The Tempest. This new arrangement follows each character through his/her/its own pattern of action individually (unless it is a group of characters, and then it’s the group that is followed). The newly arrived-at codification is a directed acyclic graph. This research will allow an algorithm to be devised that will codify all of Shapespeare’s plays into this new character-centric form.
