Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

Note to SnSt Ht 32III

[All]: The headings are 25 () and liðhendum ‘with helping rhymes’ (U(47R)). For this variant, see SnE 2007, 57-8 and Gade (1995a, 116, 259 nn. 6, 7). For liðhent, see sts 41 and 53 below. The name of the verse-form, riðhent ‘rocking-rhymed’, refers to the proximity of the internal rhymes (with only an unstressed, enclitic syllable between them).
