Pop Chart Lab has created “A Diagrammatical Dissertation on Opening Lines of Notable Novels,” an art print that diagrams the opening lines of 25 famous novels. Each sentence is diagrammed using the classic Reed-Kellogg system. Signed and numbered prints are available to purchase online.

From Cervantes to Faulkner to Pynchon, each sentence has been painstakingly curated and diagrammed by PCL’s research team, parsing classical prose by parts of speech and offering a partitioned, color-coded picto-grammatical representation of some of the most famous first words in literary history. Whether you’re a book buff, an English teacher, or a hard-line grammarian, this diagrammatical dissertation has something for the aesthete in all of us.
