Introduction

Finding metaphor is a developing system for digital humanities. The system was inspired from movie [Finding Forrester], which tells a story of finding hidden Forrester through his special literature.

This system mainly 'finds' two literati: LiBai and Shakespeare. We find these two literati's writing characteristics, emotions and so on by the special metaphors in their works. Therefore, our work of finding metaphor is divided into two parts: Finding Libai and Finding Shakespeare.

Finding Libai is for analyzing poet LiBai's emotions and writing characteristics, and Finding Shakespeare is for finding the implicit emotions and relations between words in his sonnets.
