26 In other words, neither reverie nor phantasmagoria challenges or even asserts reality. 27 *** It will be found, in fact, that the ingenious are always fanciful, and the truly imaginative never otherwise than analytic. Edgar Allan Poe, “Murders in the Rue Morgue” MORELLI IN THE RUE MORGUE The 1841 publication of Poe’s “Murders in the Rue Morgue” introduced a new literary genre. Detective stories represent, for Benjamin, a consummately modern literary form. At once emotionally detached and compellingly visceral, the detective story vacillates between antithetical impulses.

In the implicit insistence here on a homology between the creativity of the Artist and that of God, the Artist is not imitating God’s effects – Nature – as much as he is imitating Nature’s God’s modus operandi: how God works. Soane’s mimetic labor must simulate an activity which circumscribes or even circumnavigates time itself – it is outside of time, yet equally a product of time. As the existence, nature, and Will of God might be taken as “legible” in and through God’s effects – the divine Artificer’s artifacts, which is in fact the intensely funeous Book of Nature – so too must the existence and will of Soane the Artist be legible, in a two-step process of reconstructive reading, which itself might resemble the reconstructive reading of the collection’s fragments themselves: their re-collection.

Soane gives himself to be seen by giving his future public tangible symptoms of his creative activity – traces and relics by which the creativity and the intentions of this “Artist who inhabited the place” could be reconstructed clearly and unambiguously. Now this Artist of the future ruin – Soane himself – was a very complex, and seemingly very elusive character, in a number of important ways. In contrast to the founders of virtually all other great collections open to the public, whose busts, statues, and dedicatory inscriptions grace thresholds and entryways, John Soane was figured in his museum ambiguously, in fragments, and anonymously, as an unlabeled bust among other objects in the collection.
