Hǫss knýr hjarðar vísi
(hann ræðr of fjǫr manna)
hallir, hristir mjallar
hadds, blóðvita rǫddu,
sá kennir þér sinna
svarðristit ben jarðar,
þat verðr at fé fjǫtrar
fjǫr þitt, en sék gǫrva.

Opt es auðar þopta
œr es tungu hrœrir
(sék á blóðgum búki
bengrát), es ér látið;
tarfr mun hér, þvít horfa
hann tekr reiðr við mǫnnum,
(þat sér golls ens gjalla
Gerðr) þinn bani verða.

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.
