James Joyce and Nora Barnacle's visible sexuality is well documented in their biographies. Gordon Bowker reports, "In Locarno, at the Pension Daheinm, Nora was enjoying herself […]. She relaxed by reading a book sent by Jim (probably Venus in Furs) by their favourite pornographer. 'I am very glad to get it, especially as it is by Masoch,' she wrote, and teased him with hints of flirtations by beginning one letter, 'Dear Cuckold.'" Leopold von Sacher-Masoch: from whom the term masochism is derived. The intertextual/autobiographical connections between James and Nora's sex lives, Masoch's Venus in Furs, and the sexual nature of Joyce's characters are impossible to ignore.

Borrowers & Lenders, The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation, is soliciting contributions to its "Appropriations in Performance" section. B&L is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia scholarly journal and winner of the CELJ's "Best New Journal" award for 2007. We publish two issues each year. In addition to the main section, which features articles and article clusters, we regularly run three dedicated sections: Appropriations in Performance, Digital Appropriations, and Book Reviews.
For the "Appropriations in Performance" section, we prefer thesis-driven reviews focused on arguments and observations over more traditional, archival reviews geared primarily to making descriptive or evaluative records.
