Most textual digital collections, e.g. novels, romances and verses, follow some chronological plot of events. Each event can be tagged separately, for example "arrival scene" or "dinner scene". However, the raw xml formatting does not allow us to see these events visually.
On the other hand, the chronological historical timelines are very common and they usually display events by periods. For example, Timetoast tool. Literary events are more contexual and simple chronological timeline does not seem to be appropriate. In addition, the textual content is not searchable or interactive in such a fixed timeline. At present, I do not know any visualization software that would enable event annotation and its visualization. I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas!
