I have a small corpus of literary texts that I want to encode
by the TEI. I am especially interessed in encoding text sections
that are important for literary analysis. It would be very nice
if I can mark sections according to descriptions or statements
of literary characters, their actions and speeches. For analysing
reasons it is also important to include information about the
relations of the characters, like which character acts in relation to
another. Here is an example of what I want to encode:
<l><s function="statement" who="narrator"
object="Mephistopheles">Er ist's!</s> am Baum hervor, aus Moos und
<l><s function="description" who="narrator"
object="Mephistopheles">Mit seiner Augen finsterem Geloder</s>,</l>
<l><s function="action" who="Mephistopheles">Der
Teufel blickt gewärtig und bereit</s>,</l>
<l><s function="action" who="Mephistopheles"
object="Faust">Und streckt sein Haupt in Faustens Einsamkeit</s>.</ l></lg>
So, I want to ask if someone might have suggestions how to encode this.
There might be completely different ways to encode the texts as well,
by for instance by using feature structures. It would be very
interesting to know how other projects have encoded texts for literary
