Wolfram Alpha now does literary analysis, breaks down the Bard's work

Literary geeks rejoice! Wolfram Alpha has given you the tools to examine the works of William Shakespeare in ways you’ve never cared to imagined. Ever wondered how many words are in the second act of Othello? Or what the longest word is in A Midsummer Night’s Dream? The answers to such (largely unasked) queries are now mere keystrokes away, and not just for the Bard’s writings, either. That’s right, folks, computational analysis of the works from such luminaries as Melville, Dickens, and Twain are on tap, too. The folks at Wolfram Alpha are also looking to increase the number of supported titles, so head on down to the source link and let them know which ones you want to see.
