Book: The Lay Of Sigrdrifa by Wh Auden

Sigrdrifumal or Brynhildarljod is one of the heroic poems of the Poetic Edda. It relates the meeting of the valkyrie Sigrdrifa with the hero Sigurdr and largely consists of Sigrdrifa's advice to him, which includes cryptic References to Norse Mythology and magical runes. The metre is fornyrdislag.

The beginning of the poem is preserved in the Codex Regius where it follows Fafnismal. The end is in the lost part of the manuscript but it is preserved in later copies. The Volsunga Saga describes the scene and contains some of the poem.
