Abstract [en]

This article addresses the complicated second strophe of the ON. poem . It stresses the fact that Snorri Sturluson is not only our source to the strophe but also himself an interpretor of it. This brings me back to an earlier suggestion that the -- from Snorri on -- supposed location Singasteinn could actually be an object, a possibility that leads me to propose a new linguistic interpretation. Finally, the sontent is put into a larger comparative myth complex which would suit the actors of the strophe, and also help us to a fuller understanding of its meaning.
