1.Manual Network Analysis
I chose a short story to do my diagram on–Eudora Welty’s “Why I Live at the P.O”. There were four main characters and then a fifth and six (which became very vocal later). I separated the nodes by number and then by gender attributes. 1 for female, 2 for male. My edges quickly multiplied and I found myself going over connections that I had already made. Needless to say, the females did the majority of the talking, which for a southern story seemed very appropriate. (: Sister is the main character, so her node had the most interaction between all the other nodes. For those of you unfamiliar with Eudora Welty, she’s fabulous. Check her out.
