Subject: B&L 8.1 is out!
The Editors of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation rejoice at the release of B&L 8.1, which includes: a special cluster on nineteenth-century women actors, artists, and authors, with ground-breaking images of Sarah Bernhardt’s sculptures by Alan Young; discussions of Fanny Kemble, Ellen Tree, and Joanna Baillie, by Anne Russell and Judith Slagle; an article on proto-feminist Shakespearean editors in 19thc. America, by Tricia Lootens; multi-media-rich essays by Peter Erickson and Amy Scott-Douglass on Toni Morrison’s Desdemona and the Met Opera’s The Enchanted Island, respectively; and Sarah Olive’s argument for the term “incidental appropriation” to address glimpses of Shakespeare in British popular reality television shows (of which you can even watch glimpses in streaming video clips).
