ATG Quirkies: Poetic Word Clouds – with Fun “Slider” Action

This post from the folks at My Poetic Side will appeal to anyone who has a even trace of poetry in their soul.

After having analyzed their entire database of over 35,000 poems My Poetic Side has discovered “the most common words in poetry, not only generally but in relation to some of the most famous poets as well. In the process, we created fun sliding images for 9 of the most important authors + a final general comparison.”

From Shakespeare and William Frost to Maya Angelou and Sylvia Plath, the favorite words of these major poets are gather together in fun word clouds that can be changed to an image of the poet with the slide of your mouse.  Check it Out!

(Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies!)
