Example text

The ability of the troll-woman to materialize in an instant can provide the hero with physical assistance as well as good counsel. In a later scrape involving a whale (Jónsson 1954, 4:232–33), Hjálmþér realizes he is in a serious predicament and calls to mind the offer of help from the two troll-women, Skinnhúfa and Vargeisa. As soon as he has spoken his thoughts out loud, he sees two vultures flying towards the whale. 9. “Heiði hana héto, / hvars til húsa kom, / volo velspá, / vitti hon ganda; / seið hon, hvars hon kunni, / seið hon hug leikinn, / æ var hon angan / illrar brúðar” [They called her Heiðr, wherever she came to people’s houses, the volva prophesying well, she charmed spirits; she practised magic wherever she could, she entranced the mind with magic, she was always the delight of evil women] (Voluspá 22; Neckel and Kuhn 1983, 5–6).

For an account of the manuscript preservation of the saga see Boer 1888, i–lii; also Mitchell 1991, 109, for a recent summary. Bandle (1988) has analysed the significance of the variations between versions, as has Kroesen (1993). 13. AM 343a 4º, 59v–81v (ca. 1450–1475); AM 471 4º, 61r–91v, 93r–96v (ca. 1450–1500); AM 173 fol. (late seventeenth century), referred to by Boer as A, B, and E respectively. See further Boer 1888, i–vii. Eddic Prophecy in the fornaldarsögur 37 companions that the curse on his return has been dispelled, only to trip over something on the uneven terrain on his next step.

7, 43v–57r (referred to as S), dated to the first quarter of the fourteenth century (the datings of texts are those given in Degnbol et al. 1989, 428). In the slightly younger version referred to as M (AM 344 a 4º, 1r–24v, dated to ca. 9–10). The second stanza the volva recites also has an additional line in M which reinforces the prediction of Oddr’s grand age: “þá ertu fullgamall fylkir orðinn” [when you are a very old king] (Boer 1888, 15, note to verse 2). 8–9). After the long and successful life promised by the volva, which provides him with the kingdom of Húnaland, abundant income from taxes, and two male heirs, Oddr is moved to travel back to his patrimony, the Norwegian island of Hrafnista.
