This piece outlines the rediscovery (in Walter Scott's library at Abbotsford) of James Beattie's poem, The Grotesquiad, thought to have been lost since the 1760s. The article contextualises Beattie's poem by exploring contemporary theories of humour, responses to mock-heroic and intertextuality. It also offers an edited transcription of the text itself, which is made up of 4 books and is over 10,000 words long.
