Abstract

This paper analyses the representation of the female poet Áslaug Sigurðardóttir in the Ragnars saga, as well as the representations of women contained in her own verses. After a brief—but necessary—review of the main formal and stylistic characteristics of skaldic poetry and the variant used in this saga, some of Áslaug’s poems will be discussed to showcase her divergence from the canon of skaldic poetry, taking the context of recitation into consideration and the anesthetization process that pretends to bring the verses closer to the audience.
