Mér bauð mætan fúra
máskeiðs í dag breiðan
(trautt var þat tækt) í sættir
tínir kníf ok brýni;
orms mærar hefik órum
unda naðri ór mundum
hjarta stíg á hneigi
hann ok vegit kannat.

Roðin var randar bryðja
(ráð kenniz) dag þenna,
fúrsveigi hjó ek frægan
flóðs, í Gellis blóði;
nú tel ek hefnt, en hrafni
heitr fangaðiz sveiti,
getit verðr slíks fyr snotrum
seggjum, hǫggs ok tveggja.

Þikkiz þremja stǫkkvir
(þat er líkindi) at ríki
reyndr í rǫskum hǫndum
ráð várt hafa báðum,
fyrr get ek hins, en hjǫrva
hljómbeiðir mik veiði,
(hugðr mun hróðr), at brǫgðum
hringbætandi mæti.

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.
