Risu, þás ǫnd lét Ysja
aldrœn í gný skjalda,
sterk frák stôl í myrkri,
stór tíðendi, ríða;
sýnt var, at seggir mintusk
síns, þás friðr tók dvína,
(opt rekr ǫld til heipta
ofnauð) fǫður dauða.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
