The very writing of this hetero-graph charges us to turn our gaze back on the monstrous city at the close of the nineteenth century. It demands that we turn our attention to that for which we have no adequate language, though it remains nevertheless our invention. As counter-signature, it bespeaks a city, in the face of breakdown, the desire for annihilation, amnesia and epistemological crisis, ‘resistant to the cognitive regimen of history’ (Luckhurst 2002: 530), or indeed any other mode of determinable perception or ordering.
Belonging to what Nicholas Daly calls the ‘romance revival’ of the ﬁn de siècle (1999: 4–29), The Beetle exempliﬁes a form of popular narrative which seeks to accommodate the anxieties of late imperial English national identity, as already remarked. It does so by testing the virility of that identity through the arrival of some threat. Its being set in the Megalopolis of London only serves to exploit and intensify, as well as accommodate, such irrational fears, the difference being that it manifests the threats – for there are more than one – as being of the city, produced by it and belonging to it.
Following an explosion, witnesses discover the remains of bodies, which, while neither men nor women, appear, it is alleged – though without ‘scientiﬁc examination’ (and thereby open to disbelief and speculation) – to be ‘of creatures of some monstrous growth’ (B 320). Champnell’s ﬁnal narrative is in ruins itself, in a writerly performative replication of the ‘den of demons’. The detective’s The Beetle, London and Late Imperial England 31 account is nothing more than so many negative fragments, the negating force of which is cumulative in its effect on the reader as narrative description slides irreversibly into a performative speech act, so that the absence of knowledge spreads like a virus everywhere throughout the narrative, becoming an inextricable part of it.
