Fyll horn, kona;         frák, at belldi
Ôleifr konungr         undri miklu,
þás sǫðlaði         sínum mági
bukk at ríða;         ber mér ok þér.
 
‘Fill the horn, woman; I have heard that King Óláfr performed a great wonder when he saddled a he-goat for his kinsman to ride; carry it to me and to you.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
