Havamal – translated by Bellows (1936)

Beowulf

A list of the 5 rough sections of the Havamal:

  • Section 1: Guest Rights and Responsibilities: verses 1-80. Especially verse 77 “Cattle die, kindred die...” and keeping guests knees warm.
  • Section 2: Verses 81-110. On Women: including 2 stories of the seduction of women.
  • Section 3: Verses 111 – 137. Advice for the Stray Singer: “I advise you...”  Especially verse 127, the basis for Declaration 127 signed by TAC.
  • Section 4: Runes: verses 138-146: Especially verses 138-139 which describe the Allfather’s self sacrifice to obtain the runes.
  • Section 5: Verse 147 to the end: Charms:”I know a first, a second” etc. Verse 157 mentions the runes again.

Section 2 is actually 30 ish verses, not 20 ish.  80-110.  My bad.
