Eldr nam at œsask
en jǫrð at skjálfa
ok hár logi
við himni gnæfa;
fár treystisk þar
fylkis rekka
eld at ríða
né yfir stíga.

Sigurðr Grana
sverði keyrði,
eldr sloknaði
fyr ǫðlingi,
logi allr lægðisk
fyr lofgjǫrnum;
blíku reiði,
er Reginn átti.

‘Sigurðr vá at ormi,
en þat síðan mun
engum fyrnask,
meðan ǫld lifir.
En hlýri þinn
hvárki þorði
eld at ríða
né yfir stíga’.

Út gekk Sigurðr
annspjalli frá,
hollvinr lofða,
ok hnípaði,
svá at ganga nam
gunnarfúsum
sundr of síður
serkr járnofinn.

Sumir viðfiska tóku,
sumir vitnishræ skífðu,
sumir Guttormi gáfu
gerahold
við mungáti
ok marga hluti
aðra í tyfrum.

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.
