The Folger Digital Texts API (application program interface) works with Folger Digital Texts, a complete collection of modernized editions of Shakespeare’s plays. The API offers several features for analyzing the plays using pre-programmed scripts that permit one to pull one character’s lines from a play, or to see the play from their perspective. Here you’ll also find a character chart where you can see who’s on stage at any given point in the play (great for casting activities), as well as “The Four Points of Character Analysis” activity. You may also find printed companions to these texts under the Folger Shakespeare Library imprint, as well as the plays and contexts at Folger Shakespeare).
