Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

Note to ÞSjár Þórdr 1I

[1-4]: The clause arrangement in this helmingr (bound clause preceding the main clause) violates the normal sentence structure of skaldic poetry (see Kuhn 1983, 190-1), and it is possible that the couplets have been rearranged or that they originally belonged to different helmingar.
