Bar Graphs

The following graphs are intended to provide a visual representation of the patterns of reference usage in our corpus. The table of contents below can be used to navigate to a specific graph.

Comparative graph of references types as used by each artist

This graph provides a representation, by percentage, of the dispersal of each reference type between our artists, to show which issues are more heavily stressed by which artists.

Percentage of total count of each reference type, as distributed between each artist. scroll → 100% 50% MM 25 G family MM 25 G death MM 25 G war MM 25 G nature MM 25 G collective MM 25 G violence MM 25 G immigrants MM 25 G usa MM 25 G other race MM 25 G foreigners MM 25 G folk MM 25 G ancestors MM 25 G love MM 25 G sex MM 25 G home MM 25 G homeland MM 25 G russia MM 25 G slavic race MM 25 G russian race MM 25 G race MM 25 G religion MM 25 G faith MM 25 G soul MM 25 G ideology MM 25 G sport MM 25 G strength MM 25 G alcohol MM 25 G drugs MM 25 G tobacco MM 25 G politics MM 25 G police MM 25 G media MM 25 G system MM 25 G economy family death war nature collective violence foreigners history love motherland race religion strength substances system

Reference relativity graphs

The following graphs provide a representation of the relative frequency of different types of references in our corpus, calculated on aggregate, and for each individual artist. To ensure that each reference is visible and prevent outputting an unweildy graph, the bars were calculated as the square root of the total counts of each reference type, multiplied by an enlarging factor.

Positive instances of a reference add to the height of the bar above the x-axis, while negative add to its extension below. Neutral references are split between the two, providing the gradience along the central shift by the x-axis; the larger the gradient event, the more often neutral references of that particular type appeared. It should be noted that most of the gradient sections are relatively small, revealing the typically stark stance that these artists take on particular issues.
