Lausavísur from Njáls saga — R. D. Fulk

Not published: do not cite (Anon (Nj)V (Nj))


Ek ríð hesti
ills valdandi;
eldr es í endum,
eitr í miðju;
svá es of Flosa róð
sem fari kefli;
svá es of Flosa róð
sem fari kefli.

Hǫggorma mun hefjask
herði-Þundr á landi;
séa munu menn á moldu
margar heila borgir;
nú vex blárra brodda
beystisullr í fjǫllum;
koma mun sumra seggja
sveita-dǫgg á leggi.

Vask þars bragnar bǫrðusk,
brandr gall á Írlandi
margr, þars mœttusk tǫrgur,
malmr gnast í dyn hjalma;
svipun þeira frák snarpa,
Sigurðr fell í dyn vigra,
áðr téði ben blœða,
Bríann fell ok helt velli.

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.
