'Antony and Cleopatra' on Wordle

No 11. in our Shakespeare Wordles series : Antony and Cleopatra. The Wordle series will resume after half-term, and at the end there'll be a summary slide-show.

Wordles are created by Jonathan Feinberg's online tool here; the more times the word appears in the text, the larger the word. In our Shakespeare Wordles, the entire text, including the name indicators of the characters before they speak, is included. Thus you can see how relatively dominant a character is in each play, as well as spot recurring ideas and themes. Our Wordles use different numbers of 'maximum words'.
