Feldi folks valdi
fyrst ens gollbyrsta
velti valgaltar
Vígfús þanns hétu;
slíta þar síðan
sôrum benskárar
brôð af bǫð-Nirði,
Bjarnar arfnytja.

Saddi svangreddir
sára dynbôru
ǫrn á ulfs virði
í Alptafirði;
þar lét þá Snorri
þegna at hjǫrregni
fjǫrvi fimm numna;
svá skal fjandr hegna.

Meirr vá enn móðbarri
menn at hjǫrsennu
týnir tjǫr-reinar
tvá fyr Ô sunnan;
lôgu sjau síðan
(slíks eru jarteinir)
gífrs á grand-nesi
gumnar fjǫrnumnir.

Bǫð varð í Bitru,
brôð hykk þar fengu
gørvi gnógs styrjar
gjóðum sigfljóða;
lôgu lífs vanir
leiðendr hafreiðar
þrír fyr þrekstœri;
þar fekk hrafn væri.

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.
