Cite as: Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.) 2017, ‘Ǫrvar-Odds saga 6 (Hjálmarr inn hugumstóri, Lausavísur 2)’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry in fornaldarsögur. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 8. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 818.
context: This stanza, also
spoken by Hjálmarr, continues straight on from the previous one without prose
notes: [7-8]: It is not clear whether these lines refer to the event that the prose text of Ǫrv narrates immediately before Hjálmarr and Oddr hear the berserks roaring or to some other incident. While the two heroes are off getting timber to repair their boats, the twelve berserks massacre their crew (Ǫrv 1888, 96). This event is alluded to also in Ǫrv 7/7-8 below.
