Cite as: Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.) 2017, ‘Friðþjófs saga ins frœkna 14 (Friðþjófr Þorsteinsson, Lausavísur 12)’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry in fornaldarsögur. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 8. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 212.
context: As for Frið 13.
notes: This stanza is only in 510 and later A redaction mss, though absent from 568ˣ, which gives a prose summary of the incident (see Frið 1914, 15). The first helmingr corresponds in subject matter to Frið 13, but the second helmingr reintroduces the notion of drowning seamen visiting the sea-deity Rán (see Frið 11/5-8 above), though here with a somewhat moralistic (and probably Christian) perspective. The stanza is regular fornyrðislag.
