Road Narrative Spectrum: 07/28/18
At the start of June, I announced a new, very focused, quantified way I was analyzing road narratives, both fictional and nonfictional. At the time, though, on the website I was still sorting the reviews I've read for this project by an older prototype. Meanwhile, for my own use, I had a color coded spreadsheet.
After nearly two months of using this road narrative spectrum to analyze and group similar narratives, I have found it an invaluable tool. I believe it's valuable enough to group the actual, public facing project. Therefore, I've rebuilt the road reviews page to be sorted via the spectrum. It's divided in six sections, with the traveler(s) as the topic heading for each group.
Included above the narrative reviews is a section of road narrative analysis I've read. These books being too broad stand apart from the spectrum but are still worth including to see where else I'm learning about road narratives.
To see the redesigned, newly sorted reviews, click on Road Reviews, available on the header of every page.
