Jarðar heiti — Þul JarðarIII

Anonymous Þulur

Elena Gurevich 2017, ‘ Anonymous, Jarðar heiti’ in Kari Ellen Gade and Edith Marold (eds), Poetry from Treatises on Poetics. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 3. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 877. <https://skaldic.org/m.php?p=text&i=3209> (accessed 22 September 2021)

 

This þula (Þul Jarðar) contains heiti for ‘earth’. It is recorded in mss R (main ms. for st. 2), , C, A (main ms. for st. 1) and B (and 744ˣ) of Skm (SnE). In mss A and B, the þula has the chapter heading Jarðar heiti ‘Names for earth’ (in A, written in red ink); the heading is illegible in R and omitted in , C. In all mss, Þul Jarðar is preceded by Þul Skipa. It is followed by Þul  Øxna in R, , C, and by Þul Viðar in A and B. Around twenty-eight of the heiti found in this þula, plus an additional twelve heiti, are recorded in LaufE, but in a different order than in the þula (LaufE 1979, 280-1, 358; mss papp10ˣ(44r-v), 3638ˣ(100), 743ˣ(78r-v)). Those heiti were copied in RE 1665(Gg2) from a LaufE ms. Neither LaufE nor RE 1665 has been considered in this edition. Many of the translations of the heiti in the present list follow those given by Faulkes (1987, 163).
