Word Length Landscape 4.7 4.2 3.7

Data is turned into a landscape with the mean word length measurements giving rise to area chart mountains––Shelley's Zastrozzi 1810 has a mean word length of 4.7 characters, Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities 1859 represents the middle at 4.2 characters, and Stevenson's The Beach 1893 has a mean of 3.7 characters, respectively. "Undistinguishable" is the longest word at 17 characters.
