Biography

Kari Ellen Gade 2009, ‘(Biography of) Þórarinn stuttfeldr’ in Kari Ellen Gade (ed.), Poetry from the Kings’ Sagas 2: From c. 1035 to c. 1300. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 2. Turnhout: Brepols, pp. 473-81.

Þórarinn stuttfeldr ‘Short-cloak’ (Þstf) is known only from the episode recounted in Msona in Mork (Mork), H-Hr (H, Hr) and the interpolated mss of Hkr (F, E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ), in which he acquired his nickname stuttfeldr (see Mork 1928-32, 385-7; Fms 7, 152-5; F 1871, 299-300; E 1916, 150-1). See also Þstf Lv 1-3 below and Sjórs Lv 2. Þórarinn is listed among the poets of Sigurðr jórsalafari ‘Jerusalem-farer’ Magnússon (d. 1130) in Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 263, 276, 629-31). According to Mork (1928-32, 386), Þórarinn was an Icelander.
