Forað ek heiti,
fædd vark norðarla
hraust í Hrafnseyju;
hveimleið búmǫnnum,
hvǫt til áræðis
hvatki er ilt skal inna.

Mǫrgum manni
hefk til moldar snúit
þeims til fiskjar fór;
hverr er enn kǫpurmáli,
er kominn er í sker?

Synjak þess eigi,
seggr enn víðfǫrli,
at þú líf hafir
langt of menn aðra,
ef fund okkarn
fyrðum óblauðum
segir sveinn lítill,
sék þinn hug skjálfa.

Gang hófk upp í Angri,
eigraðak þá til Steigar,
skálm glamrandi skrapti,
skarmtak þá til Karmtar,
elda munk á Jaðri
ok at Útsteini blása,
þá munk austr við Elfi,
áðr dagr á mik skíni
[ok með brúðkonum beigla
ok brátt gefin jarli].

Seyði þínum munk snúa
ok sjálfum þér gnúa,
unz þik gríðr of grípr
[ok mun hon koma með sínu gjálfri].

Flaug ok Fífu
hugðak fjarri vera,
hræðumkat Hremsu bit.

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.
