Nec nominabo;
pene monstrabo:
curuus est deorsum
nasus in apostata,
qui Sueion regem
de terra seduxit
et filium Tryggva
traxit in dolo.
 
‘I will not name [him]; I will almost indicate: the nose is bent downwards on the apostate who enticed King Sveinn from his realm and drew the son of Tryggvi on treacherously.

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.
