Dásamligt fræði        var þér draumi kvadd,
        en þú sázt it sanna;
fyrða engi
        var svá fróðr skapaðr,
        er áðr hefði heyrt Sólarljóðs sögu.

Dásamligt fræði var kvadd þér draumi, en þú sázt it sanna; engi fyrða var skapaðr svá fróðr, er áðr hefði heyrt Sólarljóðs sögu.

Admirable advice was addressed to you in a dream, but you feared the truth; no man was created so wise that he would have heard ‘Sólarljóð’s’ tale before.

Mss: 166bˣ(48v), 214ˣ(152v), 10575ˣ(11v), 2797ˣ(238)

Readings: [2] draumi: í draumi 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ;    kvadd: í kvatt 214ˣ    [3] sázt: sátt 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ    [5] skapaðr: of skapaðr 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ    [6] hefði heyrt: heyrði 214ˣ, 10575ˣ, 2797ˣ

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XII], G [6]. Sólarljóð 83: AI, 640, Bugge 1867, 370, Njörður Njarðvík 1993, 89.

Notes: [All]: This st. occurs in 32 mss though eds have usually rejected it as a later addition. Certainly it adds nothing to st. 82, but as Bugge observes, this is not an adequate reason for deleting it. It imposes on the poem the dream-framework common in literary and in later medieval visions (Dinzelbacher 1981, 229-65).
