• In this article, we bring to light a text that foregrounds listening to the monster, in this case the Blemmyes, by making available to scholarly readers a previously unknown Middle English poem of great historical and literary significance. Our discovery was made possible through the generous funding of the NEPS (National Endowment for the Preternatural Studies), which allowed us to spend the summer of 2016 cataloging previously unstudied collections in the famously capacious library of Miskatonic University, in Arkham, MA. As is well known, several collections in the library were assembled and acquired in order to bolster the founders’ problematic stances on race, miscegenation, and eugenics, and since the radical restructuring of the administration, mission, and student body in the 1990s, are consequently now being mined by researchers in critical race theory and sociology as a trove of sources, some unique survivals, on individual and structural racism.
