Vas Þorfinnr,
þjóðar sessi,
aldrs alinn
oss til hjalpar,
þás mik víf,
í valskorum
lukt ok læst,
lífs of kvaddi.

Vas stórskip
stálgoðs bana
rauða-hafs
ok Regins skáli,
es Býleists
bróður-dóttur
manna mest
mér varnaði.

Þótti þá
þengils mǫnnum
ekki dælt
oss at stríða,
es Hlébarðr
hlífar eldi
bragða borg
brenna vildi.

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.
