A New Look at A Hunger Artist


I plugged the entire text of Franz Kafka's "A Hunger Artist" into a tool named Wordle to produce this startling word cloud. What has Wordle done? From the Wordle website

"Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text." Wordle

I'm not quite sure how to explain this, but after having seen this graphic, I'm more convinced than ever that I chose the right name for this blog.

Thanks Bob. That's two hours of my life I can never get back. Great fun. The word cloud for my blog is particularly revealing.
