Most of us are used to viewing a work in a linear manner. A plot moves in one direction as does the evolution of discourse. To view literature using space and networks is vastly different to our previously linear analysis. Franco Moretti discusses these differences in “Network Theory, Plot Analysis”. He suggests that using networks and spatial analysis we can map out a play such as Hamlet using different characters and deeds. Before we could analyze style and aesthetic but with networks we can analyze plot as well. The protagonist acts as the central point since all characters interact through them. By using networks we can see what the protagonist has done to/with whom and what they will be doing, “Making the past just as visible as the present: that is one major change introduced by the use of networks. Then, they make visible specific “regions” within the plot as a whole: subsystems, that share some significant property” (Moretti 4). By connecting characters and deeds there was a hope to change the way we analyze plot. Rather than a single chain of events there would be a network of connections. The networks would create a three dimensional model of a work giving the piece a different depth. The network supersedes the timeline because it focuses on all aspects of the plot at one single moment. Every action and every character is accounted for. Compound this technique with the temporal mode we have used before both the style and the plot can be analyzed. Networks give literary studies a new breathe but they are certainly not the end all be all of this form of analysis.
