Sample text

All of these are also recorded in other sagas of St Óláfr (notably LegS, with which these fragments have a close relationship). Thus, only thirteen stanzas of the ‘skaldic corpus’ studied here are recorded as early as 1225, which is 150–200 years after they were first composed. However, a large number of manuscripts from later on in the thirteenth century contain skaldic stanzas. 1225–50 is the ‘Legendary Saga’ of St Óláfr (DG 8) citing 63 skaldic stanzas (listed in LegS, 238–43), including some not recorded elsewhere.

Here, one might think the question of reconstruction was of less significance, since the job of the editor is presumably to arrive at the text of the poem as included in the prose source, rather than at its hypothetical ‘original’. And indeed, most editors try to avoid using variants from other text traditions in their reconstructions of the verses in their prose texts, but this is not always possible. So they turn to metrical, grammatical, lexical, stylistic, or other criteria to reconstruct the verse texts, and such criteria may indicate the choice of a variant from another prose text containing the verse in question.
