Abstract:

This book presents a detailed analysis of the alliteration of the whole of the
Poetic Edda (or Elder Edda) of the Codex Regius, using the Germanic
alliterative framework established by Andreas Heusler. The considerable
regularity of the alliterative scheme is demonstrated, with only a handful of
the corpus of approximately 7,300 long-lines falling outside of the rules
identified, and therefore the appropriacy of Heusler's system for
understanding the structure of the Poetic Edda is confirmed.

The needs of the student of Old Icelandic poetic style have been foremost in
mind in the presentation of this book. It includes an overview of sources not
readily available to scholars as well as those not available in English.
Copious examples are presented in Old Icelandic with English translation and
supported by a select glossary of key Old Icelandic words into English. A
Japanese language précis contains a select list of 100 alliterations that
appear in the Poetic Edda.

Contents:

Alliteration - Prose Edda - Younger Edda - Snorri Sturlusson - Old Icelandic -
Germanic linguistics - Germanic philology - Alliterative prose - Icelandic
literature.

Tadao Shimomiya studied Germanic and comparative linguistics in Tokyo,
Bonn and Salamanca. Professor of German and Germanic linguistics at
Gakushuin University, Tokyo, from 1975 to 2005, he has been Professor
Emeritus since 2005 and gained his LittD in 2010. He has published books
and papers on Germanic, Romance and Indo-European linguistics, and the
Georgian and Basque languages.
