  1. The Blast is the magazine that is the center of influence and Wyndham Lewis is the author that is the center of influence (screenshots below).

2. Magazines seem more important here as they are more centered, have more lines and connections to other magazines and authors (pictured above, The Blast, magazine versus Wyndham Lewis, author).

3. The magazine The New Freewoman is least connected to the rest of the data. This tells us that The New Freewoman is not as related to other magazines through common phrases and authors, and so it is more unique.

4. There are more outliers than I expected. I thought that each author would have more connections but most of them seem to connect by one strand to their magazine. The graph shows us that there are groups of words that are connected more than others in clusters, and that the more general words connect more clusters (pictured below, the general word of poetry).
