But modernity is a centripetal force, and the narrative lurches ever forward, in search of a form befitting the scale and speed of the observable world. There is an industrial landscape at the center of the manuscript, and Twain turns to the dime novel and its remarkable adventurer detective in search of coordinates for social cohesion that have nowhere to emerge but from this world of work. 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.
With its references to the growth of the industrial workplace and a burgeoning labor movement that would attempt to sever workers’ “workaday selves” from those selves who must be afforded time for “what we will,” the third of the Mysterious Stranger manuscripts takes modernity as its subject. It does not flinch from awful spectacles of human oppression and violence, some of them in a workplace Twain ought to have known well: a printer’s shop. For many critics, No. 44’s printer’s shop and its troublesome crew evoke Twain’s well-known financial debacle as a “venture capitalist” for the failed Paige Compositor.
No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger, as I have 38 dreams for dead bodies indicated above, gestures at this obligatory order but is plagued by temporal seizures, and the fits and starts in its historic-diachronic dimensions suggest why sjuzhet and fabula are perpetually misaligned. Twain draws on the parameters of the bildungsroman to give reality order and modernity an image of itself, but No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger is finally bereft of the act of genuine consent, that signature on the social contract embodied by the wedding oath.
