Abstract (english): A central question for the analysis of literary texts in digital humanities is the identification of characters in the text. A simple approach would be to reduce the analysis to mentions of the character by its proper name as these are easy to retrieve. A more elaborate solution requires coreference annotation, identifying all mentions of a character in the text, irrespective of their form. Using the example of the novel Corpus Delicti by the German author Juli Zeh, we compare these two approaches and show the added value of coreference annotation.
