“Axolotl” in Voyant

Very pleased by the ease of Voyant as a tool for text analysis!
I used Julio Cortázar’s “Axolotl” and was excited that the tool allows you to make a word cloud, easily apply stop words (and edit these if you need to), and visualize frequency by simply checking a box, *all on the same page*. (In the screenshot below, I decided to check words that suggested transparency (aquarium, tank, glass) to see where and how often these appeared in the text.)   I will definitely use this in my classes this year–am looking forward to it after piecemealing it with Wordle …
