ǪrvOdd Lv 6VIII (Ǫrv 36) l. 7

harðsnúinn — poetry

lemma:

harðsnúinn (adj./verb p.p.)

readings:

notes:

[7] harðsnúinn hróðr ‘impudent poetry’: Normally hróðr means ‘praise, praise poetry’, as it does in l. 2 above, but here it seems to have a more general sense, as what Sjólfr and Sigurðr have recited about Oddr is hardly praise. Harðsnúinn ‘impudent’ means lit. ‘hard-twisted’.
