Example text

It became necessary to turn the anxiety from the threat within to the threat without; hence Kauffman’s instructive guidelines: ‘look out for the baneful female’ for she is a sign of homosexuality, of un-Americanism. For US cold-war ideology this ‘baneful female’, the woman with sexuality, personality, presence is not only unacceptable as the bearer, enabler, of American manliness, she is in fact not even a woman, but a product of a warped homosexual imaginary. It is also clear that while the preoccupation of Kauffman and Taubman with the women characters in the plays of Williams and his colleagues is an index of their Freudian understanding of the homosexuality of these playwrights, it also represents an unease about the ideological relationship between naturalized heterosexual gender roles and homosexuality.

And male body desiring the gruff Maurice, who at this point is nominally Dionian, partially by virtue of the fact that he is the object of the leisure-class effete homosexual’s desire and therefore he must be ‘masculine’. Leaving university, Clive also leaves the leisure class and becomes, quite literally, landed gentry, a responsible lord and estate owner. Maurice is distinctly middle class at Cambridge and beyond, thus during his affair with Clive the arrangements suggest a seduction of the Dionian Maurice by the effete, inverted Clive, whose strategy of seduction is From Pathology to Gender Dissent 25 itself literary (‘I knew you read the Symposium in the vac’ p.

Also noticeable is its sexual inexplicitness, the absence of the theme of sodomy so crucial to Forster’s other suppressed homosexual fictions which turn on the act of sodomy as the symbolic act of male inversion through which a range of other differences – barbarian/christian, missionary/native, officer/half caste, milkman/baronet – are played out. 34 I would suggest, however, that this is not strictly the case. Forster’s text is haunted by inversionist structures, and consequently by an ideological imperative Ulrichs exemplified in his manifestos of Uranism, and which he reproduced so eloquently (albeit with the most transgressive of motives) which gestures towards a gendering of difference across desire.
