Guðlaugr (Guðl)

12th century; volume 3; ed. Tarrin Wills;

Lausavísa (Lv) - 1

Nothing is known of Guðlaugr (Guðl). The setting of the half-stanza attributed to him suggests he was Icelandic, and Skj places him in the twelfth century.

Hrǫkk at Haugabrekku
hóts meirr en til gátum
fyr hyrgœði hríðar
Halldórr í bug skjaldi.

At Haugabrekku hrǫkk Halldórr hóts meirr en gátum til í bug skjaldi fyr {{hríðar hyr}gœði}.

At Haugabrekka Halldórr recoiled a great deal more than we expected in the hollow of the shield before {the increaser {of the fire of battle}} [(lit. ‘fire-increaser of battle’) SWORD > WARRIOR].
