Fractality in Literary Quality - the Case of Nobel laureates

A new blog post from the Fabula-NET research project investigates fractality in literary quality looking into Nobel laureates and asks the question: How do we know if a book is good?

The most prestigious literary prize is perhaps the Nobel Prize in Literature. For a laureate, winning the Nobel Prize certainly has an effect on book sales and bring their work into the public eye. But does the Nobel Prize in fact reflect “Nobel quality” or anything beyond the capricious tastes of a Swedish literary committee?

Fabula-NET has looked into this and presents their findings in their recent blogpost: Fractality in Literary Quality - the Case of Nobel laureates.

Center for Humanities Computing takes part in Fabula-NET, which is a collaborative research project at the intersection of literary studies, computer science, and applied linguistics.
