Lauss varð eldr fyr ǫldum
allbrátt, er tók nátta,
út gekk hirð með Hǫrða
hildingi vegmildum;
náði Þorgils þjóða
þrekbráðr lofi ráða,
þars eimr á lið ljóma
logreitar brá heitum.

Veitti, hjǫrva, hættir
hergarða Þorvarði,
norðr fór herr með hirði
harðr til Eyjafjarðar;
ok valkastar vestan
veðrbliks liði miklu
herði-Baldr at hildi
hjalmfaldinn þrǫng aldar.

Rymgæðir nam rjóða
ríkr valslǫngu bríkar,
at þars aldir sóttusk,
odd í ferðarbroddi;
hlífði brjóst, en brustu
brandorpin ský randa,
hǫldr gekk hratt fyr skjǫldu,
hringdrífs frǫmu lífi.

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.
