Gnome on the range: finding the hypertextual narratives in ancient wisdom texts

Lawrence, K. Faith, Jordanous, Anna (2013) Gnome on the range: finding the hypertextual narratives in ancient wisdom texts. In: 3rd Narrative and Hypertext Workshop at 24th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media (HYPERTEXT 2013), 2013, Paris, France. (doi:10.1145/2462216.2462220)

Abstract

In this paper we present the Sharing Ancient WisdomS (SAWS) project. Working with wisdom texts, or gnomologia, the project aims to produce an enhanced digital scholarly edition of the collected manuscripts which both makes the Greek, Arabic and Spanish texts available and demonstrates the hypertexual nature of these texts. By positioning the texts as collections of sayings, of which a given manuscript only shows one narrative path, we demonstrate how a hypertextual approach allows us to explore alternate narrative paths within and across the texts and support researchers as they study the context, significance and transmission of the wisdoms within these works.
