The method of distant reading - term proposed by Franco Moretti (Moretti 2005 , Moretti 2013) , or – using another term – macroanalysis (Jockers 2013) has become a mainstream in digital humanities in last couple of years. The general idea of the approach is to gain new knowledge about literary and cultural processes with the help of digital and quantitative models applied to all sorts of language or literary resources. In our paper we follow the distant reading method focusing on the phenomenon of naïve poetry – poetical opuses, composed by non-professional poets and distributed on special web- sites.
