Summary
"This book explores the diverse representation of sexualities in Tennessee Williams's texts and argues for his creative response to the increase, prior to and following World War II, in criminal prosecution of transgressive sexual activity. It expands longstanding scholarly assessments of Williams's work, using the law as a framework to assess this writer's role as a cultural, political, and legal force participating in the normalization of diverse sexualities, during his lifetime and beyond."--
