Cite as: Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.) 2017, ‘Friðþjófs saga ins frœkna 22 (Hallvarðr, verses 3)’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry in fornaldarsögur. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 8. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 219.
context: In the A text, Hallvarðr speaks this stanza to a cup-bearer (byrlari), in the B text to a woman who had previously given him a drinking-horn.
notes: The prose context of the A text seems to contradict the stanza, in which Hallvarðr addresses himself to a woman, not a male cup-bearer. Some of the A redaction mss urge the woman to go onto the hall-floor to collect the speaker’s empty horn, but the majority (including 568ˣ) urge her to take it away.
