    Description

    This dataset represents my work to interpret the variances between the two published editions of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas as described in Martin Paul Eve, '"You have to keep track of your changes": The Version Variants and Publishing History of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas', Open Library of Humanities, 2(1), http://dx.doi.org/10.16995/olh.82. It was created through a hermeneutic process of cross-comparing the different texts and then marked-up in JSON by hand. Potential re-uses include corrections, further visualization, digital-humanities teaching, and structural analysis.

    Collection Method

    The dataset was created by close-reading the two versions of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas side-by-side and making subjective/hermeneutic/interpretational judgements about the functional equivalence, or otherwise, of passages. I then transcribed this into a JSON dictionary.

    The dataset covers the section of Cloud Atlas entitled "An Orison of Sonmi ~451" in its entirety. A side-by-side comparison of the texts indicated that this is where the primary differences lie between the versions.
