Old Norse poetry encompasses a range of verse forms written in Old Norse, during the period from the 8th century (see Eggjum stone) to as late as the far end of the 13th century. Most of the Old Norse poetry that survives was preserved in Iceland, but there are also 122 preserved poems in Swedish rune inscriptions, 54 in Norwegian and 12 in Danish. Old Norse poetry is characterised by alliteration, a poetic vocabulary expanded by heiti, and use of kennings. An important source of information about poetic forms in Old Norse is the Prose Edda of Snorri Sturluson.

  • Old Norse poetry encompasses a range of verse forms written in Old Norse, during the period from the 8th century (see Eggjum stone) to as late as the far end of the 13th century. Most of the Old Norse poetry that survives was preserved in Iceland, but there are also 122 preserved poems in Swedish rune inscriptions, 54 in Norwegian and 12 in Danish. Poetry played an important role in the social and religious world of the Vikings. In Norse mythology, Skáldskaparmál (1) tells the story of how Odin brought the mead of poetry to Asgard, which is an indicator of the significance of poetry within the contemporary Scandinavian culture. Old Norse poetry is characterised by alliteration, a poetic vocabulary expanded by heiti, and use of kennings. An important source of information about poetic forms in Old Norse is the Prose Edda of Snorri Sturluson. Old Norse poetry is conventionally, and somewhat arbitrarily, split into two types—Eddaic poetry (also sometimes known as Eddic poetry) and skaldic poetry. Eddaic poetry includes the poems of the Codex Regius and a few other similar ones. Skaldic poetry is usually defined as everything else not already mentioned.
  • La poesía en nórdico antiguo comprende una serie de versos escritos en nórdico antiguo durante el período que abarca desde el siglo VIII hasta fines del siglo XIII. Una cantidad significativa de literatura en nórdico antiguo fue preservada en Islandia, y también se conserva en 122 piedras rúnicas en Suecia, 54 en Noruega y 12 en Dinamarca. La literatura desempeñó un papel importante en el mundo social y religioso de los vikingos. La poesía en antiguo nórdico se divide habitualmente en dos tipos: la poesía éddica y la poesía escáldica. Se caracteríza principalmente por es uso de aliteraciones, un vocabulario poético rico en heiti y uso de kennings. La fuente más importante sobre distintas formas poéticas en nórdico antiguo procede de la obra de Snorri Sturluson.
