Strendir hvǫttu vôpn vônd,
(víða ferr Yggs líð)
Gellir vissi fyrir fall,
flatir skriðusk menn at;
Lopti vas sú gefin gipt,
grjóti mœtti hans spjót;
Jóan leyfði ok þá
ǫldum at líta skjǫld.

Kali bauð kjark at selja
kaldrôðum Þorvaldi
(nýtik Fjǫlnis flýti-
feng), en til var engi;
Þórðr munat virðum virðask,
vann á dauðum manni
(áðr sló á hodda hlœði
hvikan) með spjót et mikla.

Sekr gekk hodda hnykkir
hringeygr af várþingi;
áðr beið ilt ok síðan
Jóseppr af hvalfjósum.

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.
