Upp hrundum vér ópi,
ór bitu meir en þeira
(satt munk til þess segja)
sverð, í Gnípafirði;
knátti hverr at hildi
fyr Hvítabæ útan
(né sitt spari sveinar
sverð) manns-bani verða.

Duga mun hugr ok hjarta
í hauksnǫru brjósti,
þótt miðr of þat mæli,
manni innan rifja;
eigi er oss í augum
ormr né fránir snákar,
bræðr glǫddu mik mínir,
mank stjúpsonu þína.

Hér flýgr hverjan morgin
hǫss of borgir þessar,
læzk heill munu af hungri,
heiðar valr, of deyja;
hann fari suðr of sanda
ok sé, hvar vér létum
(þar fær dauðs manns) dreyra
(dǫgg) ór skýlihǫggum.

Þat var fyrst, er fórum,
(Freys leika tókk heyja),
þars andvíga ôttum
ǫld, í Rómaveldi;
þar létk of grǫn grána,
gall ǫrn of valfalli,
at mannskæðu morði
mitt sverð dregit 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.
