Franco Moretti announces the practice of ‘distant reading’ as entailing '...a new object of study: instead of concrete individual works, a trio of artificial constructs—graphs, maps, and trees—in which the reality of the text undergoes a process of deliberate reduction and abstraction’. (2005) In ’distant reading’, for Moretti, distance is ‘not an obstacle, but a specific form of knowledge’.
