Fundr var hættr, þars hittusk
hermenn of dag tvennir,
áðr var stálastríðir
styrframr, at Valshamri;
hringr var of hjǫrva sløngvi
harðfengr skipaðr drengjum,
áðr en Árón flýði
undan Sturlu fundi.

Fór, sás fremð ok tíri,
fleinrýrir, gat stýra,
mest lofak mikla hreysti
manns, Jórsali at kanna;
nafn rak út við ítra
Jórðôn við þrek stóran
skjaldar Freyr enn skýri
skógarmanns at gnógu.

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.
