Þorgrímsþula II — Þul Þorgþ IIIII

Anonymous Þulur

Elena Gurevich 2017, ‘(Introduction to) Anonymous, Þorgrímsþula II’ in Kari Ellen Gade and Edith Marold (eds), Poetry from Treatises on Poetics. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 3. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 675.

 

This stanza in málaháttr (Anon Þorgþ II) is another fragment of the poem called Þorgrímsþula (see Introduction to Þorgþ I). It enumerates names of oxen and is transmitted in mss R (main ms.), , U and C of Skm (SnE). In R, and C, the stanza is recorded after a prose list with names of mythical horses, and it is introduced with the words Þessi øxna heiti eru í Þorgrímsþulu ‘These names of oxen are in Þorgrímr’s þula’ (or something closely similar). In U, Þorgþ II follows directly after Kálfsvísa (Anon Kálfv) without a prose link. The stanza is not transmitted in any other medieval source, nor is it included in LaufE or RE 1665.
