Auðs hefir átta beiðir
ógóða sér móður;
hann nam fyrst at finna
fljóðs nýgenginn jóða
bræðiorð, þau er beiðir
brennu óss mun kenna;
atkvæði lifa lýða
lengr en nokkur drengja.

Trauðr var ei Torfi at deyða
tvinna skorð ok borða;
hann gjǫrir hróp at sǫnnu
hjǫrlestis í flestu;
sendi sviptir branda
silfurkess Gná þessa
á rekning at rǫngu;
raun er mál at launa.

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.
