Poetologischer Anspruch und dramatische Wirklichkeit: Indirekte Operationalisierung in der digitalen Dramenanalyse

Shakespeares natürliche Figuren im deutschen Drama des 18. Jahrhunderts

Reiter, Nils / Willand, Marcus

Abstract

The influence of Shakespeare on the playwrights of Sturm und Drang is one of the most investigated areas of German drama history and its influences. However, the application of methods from computational and corpus linguistics for text content and the quantitative analysis of text structure shed a new light on this influence. In particular, we focus on formal similarities between the plays of Shakespeare and a selection of German authors between 1730 and 1804, who have explicitly expressed their relationship to Shakespeare in poetological writings. We try to compare the poetologically postulated relevance of Shakespeare to the playwrights of Sturm und Drang (and their predecessors) with the practical relevance of Shakespeare for the formal and linguistic design of their plays. Finally, the results are discussed from two perspectives, focussing on content and methods: 1. Can this analysis show Shakespeare’s influence on the design of German dramatic texts? 2. How can poetological programs be operationalized so that their realization in dramatic plays can be evaluated by digital drama analysis?
