Shakespeare Statistics

For use in any quantitative analysis of Shakespeare:
http://sun1.rrzn.uni-hannover.de/~nhtnilse/welcome.htm

Go to Statistical Data, and it will have a table (in German). WordAn is % of words by the character, ReplAn is % of lines. It is cool! It's the basis for my previous analysis of Shakespeare in 10th grade.

Interesting tidbit: Largest lead (% words) is Hamlet, 39%. #2 is Timon of Athens 34%. Shows lead heaviness is no indicator of quality.
