Abstract

This paper aims at shedding light on an important field of literature which is poetry. The computer expert system merges its codes with some wide knowledge of several poems. Using linguistics and statistical stylistics facilitates dealing with any unexpected poem; hence the user is asked simply to count some repeated lines and stanzas, or to find out some canonical figures of speech; for instance: rhyme and similes; or even to search for some marked punctuations. Apparently, the methodology enables any person with a normal knowledge of poetry to go through some explicit questions in order to end up with a title and an author's name for the unseen chosen poem. The project aspires a prosperous interdisciplinary future of both computers and poetry and hopefully, users will be able to learn about any unknown poem to them easy.
