Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

Note to Rv Lv 16II

[7]: Kock (NN §806) suggests that at hausti ‘in the autumn’ (and therefore also heim ‘home’) should be construed with rístum ‘we will carve’ while Sigurður Nordal (Orkn 1913-16; so also Skj B) punctuates the l. so that heim but not at hausti is construed with rístum. However, it seems unlikely that Rǫgnvaldr would refer to Narbonne as heim, and both ÍF 34 and Bibire 1988 construe heim at hausti with the verb fara, as here, where it is assumed that Rǫgnvaldr is promising Ermingerðr to look in on her on his way back home.
