Hvat er þat manna,
er mér í móti ferr,
ok skríðr sem vargr af viði,
æðru skalt mæla,
ef undan kømsk,
þrisvar í firði Þrumu.

Hverr er á ǫndrum
ǫndurðan dag,
gjarn til gunnar
í grimmum hug;
vit skulum freista
flein at rjóða
hvárr at ǫðrum,
nema hugr bili.

Búsk þú nú við
bitri eggþrumu,
haf hlíf fyr þér,
hart munk skjóta;
þér munk bráðla
at bana verða,
nema þú af auði
ǫllum látir.

Skalta gulli
né gørsimum
með heilum hag
heima ráða;
kømr þér bani
brátt at hǫndum,
ef skulum úti
oddum leika.

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.
