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.

Bað gramr guma
gunnhagr draga
byrvarga á bjarg
blásvarta tvá,
þás í reipum
ramdýr þrama
sigu fyr hellis
hliðdyrr með lið.

Gunnhagr gramr bað guma draga {tvá blásvarta byrvarga} á bjarg, þás {ramdýr þrama} sigu í reipum með lið fyr hliðdyrr hellis.

The battle-skilled monarch bade the men drag {two blue-black wolves of favourable breeze} [SHIPS] onto the cliff, when {the strong animals of ship-railings} [SHIPS] slid down in the ropes with the company before the side-door of the cavern.
