ek — I

lemma:

ek (pron.; °mín, dat. mér, acc. mik): I, me

readings:

notes:

[8] en ek þagna ‘and I fall silent’: The abrupt conclusion is typical of medieval European poetry (see Curtius 1953, 89-91), and, although the small number of complete drápur makes it impossible to generalize, it is probably typical of skaldic poetry as well. The phrase appears again at the conclusion of HSt RstI.
