Gephi Lab- Braden Turner

If any magazine is the “center of influence,” it would be The Little Review. The Egoist and Poetry also appear to be influential. Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, James Joyce, and Wyndham Lewis seem to be the most influential authors. The New Freewoman and The Masses are the most isolated. I think this means the data is limited to a certain demographic, or else there would be more connections to The New Freewoman. I wasn’t too surprised by anything I saw, however, it was interesting to see authors that I’ve never heard of have so many connections. Perhaps their work didn’t endure, but maybe their influence on other authors at the time had a significant effect on literature. Network graphs appear to be a great way to prove empirically that an author or publication did, in fact, have significant influence.Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 2.44.09 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-29 at 2.33.59 PM
