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