This is a brief overview of poetic language and the Old Norse poetic forms called fornyrðyslag and málaháttr. If there is time, I will also discuss ljóðaháttr and kviduháttr. An optional handout showing the basic requirements of fornyrðyslag, málaháttr, ljóðaháttr and kviduháttr will be available for a fee which will be no more than $2.00. The electronic version of the handout is free.
