Note to Anon Mdr 13VII

[6] dáðvís paradísar: The vís : paradís rhyme is also exploited in Has 24/6 and Lil 13/4. It is uncertain how paradísar ‘of Paradise’ should be construed here: it could form a Mary-kenning (so Attwood 1996a, 324), dáðvís drottning paradísar ‘deed-wise queen of Paradise [= Mary]’, but that would leave seggja without obvious connections. The rest of the st. is too fragmentary to allow further speculation.
