Item description for The Poetry of Arnrr Jarlaskld: An Edition and Study (Westfield Publications in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, 8) by Diana Whaley Arnor Orarson...

Arnrr Thordarson jarlaskld 'Earls'-poet', born c. 1011 in western Iceland, spent most of his adult life in mainland Scandinavia and Orkney, and his poetry consists mainly of encomia for the kings Magns and Haraldr of Norway, and for Earls Thorfinnr and Rgnvaldr of Orkney, whose patronage of Arnrr is commemorated in his nickname. The corpus of his work is, by skaldic standards, large and well preserved. The verses, orally composed, were not written down in full, but are preserved as scattered quotations within manuscripts of prose sagas from the thirteenth century onwards. When reconstructed they form substantial remains of four main encomiastic poems, together with similar fragments, which celebrate the deeds of Arnrr's heroes, singing especially of triumphs in battle, but also of seafaring, political manoeuvrings, and court customs. By his time, skaldic poetry had reached full maturity, and Arnrr, consummate master of the medium, uses its metrical and stylistic resources with wit and exuberance tempered with moderation.
