Frankenstein Variorum

The Frankenstein Variorum project digitally collates five distinct versions of the novel Frankenstein produced between 1816 and 1831. Included in this project are: * Code in Python for collating editions organized in different forms of XML markup, selecting some of that markup as a basis comparison. * Code for an XSLT pipeline that prepares a TEI "spine" curating locations of variants in earlier digital editions of Frankenstein. * Code in JavaScript and HTML for designing a Variorum Viewer, an interface for reading and comparing the five versions that also involves importing edition data from the Shelley-Godwin Archive's edition of the Frankenstein manuscript notebook. * A set of scholarly annotations that comments on changes between witnesses.
