Voice of Elizabeth Barry

The Voice of Elizabeth Barry is an interdisciplinary history
project in theatre biography. Four digital components provide the
means to notate, present, and analyze features of Barrys life and
theatre career.
The first component maps the spatial dimensions of the project with
graphics of the built environment, i.e maps(3)of London: 1675-1713,
and architectural renderings of four theatre spaces. An economic
reconstruction of Barrys life income and expenses grounds the second
digital component. The third component organizes the dramatic texts of
Barrys theatrical career in HTML webpage format for shared access. The
final component analyzes sample texts for word and frequency counts of
rhetorical figures of affect as performed by Barry on the Restoration
stages.
