Nú's hersis hefnð
við hilmi efnð,
gengr ulfr ok ǫrn
of ynglings bǫrn;
flugu hǫggvin hræ
Hallvarðs á sæ;
grár slítr undir
ari Snarfara.

Mjǫk tekr ár, sás aura,
ísarns meiðr, at rísa,
váðir vidda bróður
veðr, leggja skal, kveðja;
gjalla lætk á golli
geisla njóts, meðan þjóta,
heitu, hrœrikytjur
hreggs vindfrekar, sleggjur.

Liggja ýgs fyr eggju,

fox es ilt í øxi,
undvargs flǫsur margar;
arghyrnu lát árna
aptr með roknu skapti,
þǫrfgi væri þeirar,
þat vas ingva gjǫf, hingat.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
