Ǫlvir hnúfa (Ǫlv)

9th century; volume 1; ed. Margaret Clunies Ross;

Lausavísa (Lv) - 1

The little information we possess about Ǫlvir hnúfa ‘Snub-nose’ (?) (Ǫlv) comes from the following sources: from Egils saga (Eg, ÍF 2, 3-4 n.), where this ninth-century Norwegian skald is said to be the son of Berðlu-Kári, viking companion of Egill Skallagrímsson’s paternal grandfather, Kveldúlfr; from Gullþóris saga (GullÞ), alternatively known as Þorskfirðinga saga (ÍF 13, 226), and from Skálda saga Haralds konungs hárfagra (Skáld) in Hauksbók (Hb 1892-6, 445-55). Two fragments by Ǫlvir have survived: a lausavísa (Ǫlv Lv) from Skáld, edited below, and a couplet (Ǫlv ÞórrIII) from a poem probably about the god Þórr’s fight with the Miðgarðsormr ‘World Serpent’ in mss of SnE (1998, I, 15), edited in SkP III.
