Could someone look in at a novel's article page?[edit]

@SMcCandlish:@Rosiestep:, others: Could you look in on Sophie's Choice (novel), and see if you can think of individuals in your respective writing communities, that might give some attention to this article? It is a sensitive article, insofar as Styron took a view, in the book, that has been very controversial, vis-a-vis his view of the Holocaust. When I arrived at the article, it did not even mention the controversy, and I have added it. But this is not my area of expertise, and what is needed is an English Prof, or a Holocaust literature expert, that can sensitively provide a balanced perspective on the book, from published sources. (I spent some time in my editing, in adding an extensive Further reading list of sources I could find.) I am simply not an expert in 20th century cultural history, or literature, or literary criticism, to be able to undertake these revisions. Cheers, good luck.

Outside my area, too. I'm mostly linguistics, zoology, anthropology, billiards.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  06:45, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Shakespeare and fair use[edit]

Hello, I've asked a question at WikiProject Shakespeare about adding fair use media to articles. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

In addition, for anyone in London this weekend there is an editathon about Shakespeare taking place. The event page is here. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 10:05, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Novel sales[edit]

Is there a reliable way to find the number of copies that a particular book has sold? I've been struggling through unhelpful web sources for a while now. Regards, Vanamonde93 (talk) 10:27, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

In the news candidate for writer Péter Esterházy[edit]

Hi, I've proposed Péter Esterházy as a Recent Death item for the "In the news" section, and would welcome input from you guys both at the candidate page here and of course in the article itself. Thanks! Yakikaki (talk) 12:44, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Gabriel Rossetti[edit]

Hi. Please see Gabriel Rossetti: Revision history. The son is also known as "Gabriel Rossetti", so why a redirect to the father?--Spinoziano (talk) 16:26, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Chapter summary[edit]

What is the opinion of WikiProject members on detailed chapter summaries in articles? Another user and I are having a disagreement about whether to include or omit such a summary in The Bridge on the Drina article. Would appreciate feedback. 23 editor (talk) 18:04, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi 23 editor, we don't include detailed chapter summaries. I took a look at The Bridge on the Drina - it's coming on quite nicely. If I get a chance I'll post to the talk page but if I don't make it there, you can link to this comment. Victoria (tk) 21:00, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
