Abstract

This paper presents a visualization of stories that aligns the hierarchy of story units and the hierarchy of characters’ intentions, respectively, with the story text, subdivided into chunks. The solution takes inspiration from the design introduced by the movie narrative charts, and presents an interactive tool.

Keywords
