Freudian notions of inversion, appropriated from the work of the earliest radical homosexual writers and assimilated within Freud’s system of sexual aberrations, provided a way for hostile critics to make Streetcar about homosexuality – allowed them to render it perverse – which rescued them from the difficulty offered by Williams’s problematizing representation of heterosexuality.
