Þórarinn Skeggjason (ÞSkegg)

11th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

Haraldsdrápa (Hardr) - 1

Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 275) lists Þórarinn Skeggjason (ÞSkegg) among the poets of Haraldr harðráði, but he is otherwise entirely unknown. His patronymic suggests that he may have been a brother of the Icel. poet and lawspeaker Markús Skeggjason (Mark; d. 1107), who, according to Ari fróði ‘the Learned’ Þorgilsson, had a brother named Þórarinn (see ÍF 1, 22; SnE 1848-87, III, 604-5; LH 1894-1901, I, 637). The helmingr below is the only poetry attributed to Þórarinn.
