The Tesserae project aims to provide a flexible and robust web interface for exploring intertextual parallels. Select two poems below to see a list of lines sharing two or more words (regardless of inflectional changes).
As of July 2012 the sample texts allow comparison of classical Latin poets.
Tesserae is a collaborative project of the University at Buffalo's Department of Classics and Department of Linguistics, and the VAST Lab of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. This project is funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the Digital Humanities Initiative at Buffalo.
