laga þeira,

þás mik til kappa

fyr jǫfurs ríki.

Bǫrðumk einn við einn,
en endr við tvá,
fimm ok fjóra
fletmegninga;
sex ok við sjau
senn á velli,
einn ok við átta;
þó enn lifik.

Þá hvarflaði
hugr í brjósti,
er menn ellifu
ofrkapp buðu,
áðr mér í svefni
sǫgðu dísir,
at hjǫrleik þann
heyja skyldak.

Þá kom enn hári
Hildibrandr,
Húnakappi,
hann var mér ómakr;
ok ek markaða
mæki hónum
herkuml harðlig
fyr hjálm neðan.

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.
