Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages: A New Edition

Preparation of volume two of a proposed nine volume annotated translation and edition of Old Norse Skaldic poetry from c. 1036 to 1300. (12 months)

The corpus of poetry concerned is the work of Norwegian and Icelandic skalds (poets) from the 9th to the 14th centuries, the earliest extant evidence for both material and non-material aspects of Scandinavian culture. As such, it is of great importance to philologists, literary scholars, and numerous other users, including linguists, metricists, runologists, historians, historians of religion, folklorists, anthropologists, and archaeologists. This corpus is currently only available in two outdated early 20th-century editions, accompanied by a translation into Modern Danish. The present international collaborative project will produce an authoritative modern edition with English translation (and notes) of the entire corpus of skaldic poetry. The work of the project will result in the publication of a nine-volume edition (printed as well as electronic) which will be published by Brepols Publishers (Turnhout, Belgium) as a staggered series of volumes from 2007 to 2011.
