The Automatic Quantitative Metrical Analysis of Spanish Poetry with Rantanplan: A Preliminary Approach, , , , ,
AbstractIn this paper, we present a quantitative approach to Spanish poetry and versification based on the application of our own automatic metrical tool, Rantanplan, to the complete poetic works of four early modern Spanish poets. All of the poetry of these four representative authors—Garcilaso de la Vega (1503--1536), Fernando de Herrera (1534–1597), Luis de Góngora (1561–1627), and Lope de Vega (1562–1635)—was automatically processed and stress positions were extracted. Thanks to the development of a new stanza identification feature of Rantanplan, we were able to detect metrical structures as well. By completing a quantitative analysis of the stress positions, line lengths, and stanzas used by each author, we aim to model their complete metrical profiles.
