Joyce and Pornography (SAMLA)—Durham, NC, Nov. 13-15, 2015

Ethan King, International James Joyce Foundation

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.
