His sissified bawling over this “unprintable name” and its anatomical implications seems extravagant for a son of Eseldorf, whose residents are perpetually the butt of a joke, yet August finds it a tremendous humiliation, confessing it “shamed me as few things have done since” (263). To affix the dishonor of association with No. 44 to August’s body is to liken the “girl-boy” to the denigrated subject of neoslavery, forging a link where, as Kathryn Stockton puts it, “the sign of anality flashes along the track of blacks’ economic burdens” (32).
Twain’s “cosmic” detection could not resemble the concise puzzle mystery that advances “the myth of the necessary chain,” taking as its only proper solution a single, unassailable “step-by-step path of logico-temporal recon- 30 dreams for dead bodies struction” (Porter 41). If we were to situate No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger within a linear genealogy of the detective genre, we might suspend it loosely between an Edgar Allan Poe and an Agatha Christie. But Twain’s is a text that brooks no literary lineage in linear terms.
The novel’s mise-en-scène is a heterochrony, countryside irregularly punctuated by temporal gradations and moving, like a set of nested, open- ended parentheses or an inverted telescope, from the “Dark Ages” to the turn of the twentieth century. The opening date is 1490, some years shy of the Reformation. “Some even set it away back centuries upon centuries and said that by the mental and spiritual clock it was still the Age of Faith in Austria,” the narrator remarks, and the evolutionary line is held fast by the devout and dim-witted, so that it “promised to remain so forever” (221).
