Þórarinn stuttfeldr (Þstf)

12th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

1. Stuttfeldardrápa (Stuttdr) - 7

Þórarinn stuttfeldr ‘Short-cloak’ (Þstf) is known only from the episode recounted in Msona in Mork (Mork), H-Hr (H, Hr) and the interpolated mss of Hkr (F, E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ), in which he acquired his nickname stuttfeldr (see Mork 1928-32, 385-7; Fms 7, 152-5; F 1871, 299-300; E 1916, 150-1). See also Þstf Lv 1-3 below and Sjórs Lv 2. Þórarinn is listed among the poets of Sigurðr jórsalafari ‘Jerusalem-farer’ Magnússon (d. 1130) in Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 263, 276, 629-31). According to Mork (1928-32, 386), Þórarinn was an Icelander.

Óðu at Engla
ættjǫrðu bǫrð
skaplig skipa
skafin vestr of haf.
Þótti Þrœnda
þarlands sem hvar
yfirmaðr jǫfurr
alls herjar snjallr.

Skaplig skafin bǫrð skipa óðu vestr of haf at ættjǫrðu Engla. {Snjallr jǫfurr Þrœnda} þótti yfirmaðr alls herjar þarlands sem hvar.

The shapely planed prows of the ships advanced west across the ocean to the ancestral land of the English. {The courageous prince of the Þrœndir} [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr] seemed superior to everyone else there as everywhere.
