notes: This stanza follows a format frequently found in
the mannjafnaðr; the speaker refers
to his own or his companions’ bravery, implying that it is much greater than
that of their cowardly opponents. Frequently a place, often legendary, is
mentioned as the site of the battle. The
information that the four Hálfsrekkar slew eight jarls implies that Úlfr’s
eight sons do not stand a chance either.
