Hrúts heiti — Þul HrútsIII

Anonymous Þulur

Elena Gurevich 2017, ‘ Anonymous, Hrúts 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. 890. <https://skaldic.org/m.php?p=text&i=3211> (accessed 16 September 2021)

 

This þula (Þul Hrúts) enumerates heiti for ‘ram’, and it is recorded in mss R (main ms.), , C, A and B (and 744ˣ) of Skm (SnE). In A and B, the þula has the chapter headings Hrúts heiti ‘Names for ram’ (in A, written in red ink) and Hrúta heiti ‘Names for rams’ (B). The heading is illegible in R and omitted in , C. In all mss this þula is preceded by Þul Øxna and followed by Þul Hafrs. Most of these heiti for ‘ram’ are included in LaufE (LaufE 1979, 280, 358; mss papp10ˣ(44r), 2368ˣ(100), 743ˣ(78r)). That list was derived from a version of the þula closest to R, and will not be considered here. It was copied from LaufE in RE 1665(Gg 2), which has no independent value.
