Voyant Wordcloud of Arcades Project

I have a (filthy) OCR of Benjamin’s Arcades Project (which I won’t share) and plugged it into Voyant just for fun.  I envision a digital humanities course in which students work individually or collaboratively to first fix the OCR, then apply as many text analysis tools and encoding languages as possible.  Because it is not explicitly artistic, the Arcades Project seems like an interesting text to read–by both machines and humans–alongside other informationally overloaded and archival texts such as The Making of Americans, The Cantos,  perhaps even the Wake.
