Spacial analyses of literature seem to be based on logic and mathematical analysis than temporal analyses. A large part of spacial analysis seemed to be making graphs of the contents of literature; for example, in order to find the protagonist in spacial analysis, they made a graph of relationships between characters and said the protagonist was the centermost character. Temporal analysis is based more on analyzing the actual text, such as the word frequency graphs on voyant.
Moretti backs up this view when he says “I am discussing Hamlet, and saying nothing about Shakespeare’s words – but also, in another sense, much more than it, because a model allows you to see the underlying structures of a complex object.” In this quote’s example, temporal analysis would be analyzing Shakespeare’s actual words, while spatial analysis is making a model to see the underlying structures of Hamlet. They both have their advantages and are useful in analyzing different parts of the piece of literature.
