POSTDATA Project has been accepted in Plotting Poetry’s Annual Conference, which was postponed, for now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We introduce two papers, In “Automatic quantitative metrical analysis of Spanish Poetry with Rantanplan: a first approach” (DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.5707398), we present a quantitative approach to Spanish poetry and versification through the application of our own automatic metrical tool, Rantanplan, to the complete poetic works of four Early Modern Spanish poets. The entire poetry by four representative authors of the period -Garcilaso de la Vega (1503-1536), Fernando de Herrera (1534-1597), Luis de Góngora (1561-1627), and Lope de Vega (1562-1635)— was automatically processed and stress positions were extracted. Thanks to the development of a new feature in Rantanplan for stanza identification, we could detect metrical structures as well.

On the other hand, in “Description of Postdata Poetry Ontology V1.0” (DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.5707303) we present the first version of an ontology network designed to capture poetry domain knowledge. The ontologies in question relate to poetic works and their structural and prosodic components.
