Frances Vane, Viscountess Vane[edit]

Viscountess Vane

  • ... that Lady Fanny (pictured) not only scandalously refused to deny her sexual escapades, but also advertised them in her 1751 memoirs?

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Long enough, good refs, new article, amazing story to tell, painting from Commons. Hook worked well on me; it's longish but why not. Hook is cited. Good to go. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:36, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol possible vote.svg Tweaked to make it slightly shorter, but looking at the article I'm seeing some close paraphrasing of the ODNB source. Compare for example "she openly despised him and almost immediately started her series of highly public affairs. Lord Vane remained faithful to her despite the social embarrassment and financial difficulty her sexual adventures and erratic lifestyle caused him" with "she despised her second husband, and almost immediately embarked on a series of highly public liaisons. For approximately the next thirty years her sexual adventures and extravagant spending caused Viscount Vane both social embarrassment and financial difficulty", or "she criticises contemporary social and moral mores and blames her husband, family and a hypocritical world" with "denial of contemporary social and moral mores, and...blaming her family, her husband, and a hypocritical world".

I've revamped the entire article, relying more on other sources this time. Is there any close paraphrasing left? I cannot see any. Surtsicna (talk) 15:56, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Symbol redirect vote4.png ODNB source now clear, don't have access to the other sources. Nikkimaria (talk) 21:46, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg I agree with Nikkimaria about the ODNB source and, as it's the main source, I'm happy to AGF on close paraphrasing for the other sources. I now agree with Chiswick Chap's original review - long enough, new enough, refs are good and hook is interesting and cited. Go go go! Moswento talky 12:04, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
