My favorite chapter in my dissertation, titled “Reading with a Tender Rapture,” explores the relationship between Ik Marvel, the sentimental narrator of Reveries of a Bachelor, and his readers. I examine fan letters written to Marvel (or to Donald Grant Mitchell, the author–readers often assumed that Ik was a real person), marginal annotations in copies of the books, and reimaginings of Reveries, including by Emily Dickinson. Reveries, one the most significant bestsellers in 19th C America, moved so many readers because of what I call “detached intimacy”–readers felt profound emotional identification with Ik Marvel, but at the same time could remain a safe distance from him, as reading is associated with reverie. I rather like the term “detached intimacy” and think that it might have wider application–for instance, perhaps many of the personal relationships formed through message boards, social networking applications, virtual worlds, etc. could be considered “detached intimacy,” existing in the space of the imagination.
Since I am interested in experimenting with text analysis tools and in bringing my attention to assumptions in my own argument that I might not otherwise be aware of, I fed my article “Reading with a Tender Rapture” (an improved version of my diss chapter) into TAPOR. Here are the results (using Glasgow stop words):

Some observations:
 variations of the word “read” are frequent of course
 “letter” appears more than book–presumably b/c I’m writing about fan letters, but I also think the discourse of the letter–two people connecting to each other–is the mode of detached intimacy
 terms of sentiment–intimacy, feeling, heart–appear frequently
 there seems to be a tension between relationship (19) and distance (17), as well as between “dreams” and the “real”
 “new” appears 33 times–reflecting the sense of renewal that comes from reading, as well as the significance of New York
 women (33) appear more than men (16), although man (18) appears more than woman (9)–maybe I make a bigger deal out of reading producing a “new man”?
 power, control are fairly prominent
So I think it would be pretty interesting to have a contrasts tool, so that you could see the weighting of antonyms: man/woman, dream/reality, etc. I’m also realizing how important it is to view words incontext–“new” could mean fresh, but it could also be used to modify “york”
TAPOR does allow you to list word pairs. Here are those that appear more than once. I find it interesting that “her own” (20) and “his own” (14) appear frequently, reflecting the desire to craft an identity (“the self,” 9) ; “i am,” 6) o outf the experience of reading.
Summary: There are 11994 unique word pairs , and there are 16623 word pairs in total. 10213 word pairs occurred once and 1044 word pairs occurred twice.
