POSTDATA – Poetry Standardization and Linked Open Data

The project funded by ERC Starting Grant 2015 – Horizon 2020, aims at shortening the digital gap among poetry and technology.

Making poetry available online as machine-readable data will open a great world of possibilities of linking, indexing and extracting new information.


We aim to transform
traditional scholarship on poetry into a digital humanities research environment.
Combining cutting-edge philological and computational research
we are constructing
a virtual world of semantically linked poetry.

Poems analysed and shared
