 Intro - Sigurd Ballads E.M. Smith-Dampier
The references in the Eddic Lays to the precious metals, to jewellery, weapons, and so forth, classified and compared with the yield of grave-mounds and other excavations, afford considerable support to the theory that many of the poems, or at least a substantial part of their content, existed before the Viking Age.
Attila, it may be observed, is shown in his most gracious and magnificent guise—unlike the grim tyrant of the Lays—with a splendid hall, rich armour signed by the weapon-smith, and a throne decked in all the glories of purple and fine linen.
The Danes, nevertheless, are Scandinavians; a Faroëse looks on a Dane much as an old-fashioned Lowland Scot looks on a Londoner, and the rivalry between the two languages bears no resemblance to that, say, between English and Gaelic—it is rather, roughly speaking, that between standard English and the language of Robert Burns.

Of the ancient gods indeed Olaf took little heed, and when the king reproached him, he answered, "No great joy, I think, King Valdamar, comes to you of their worship; for as often as you visit them I see your look, which is kingly and gracious, grown dark and heavy with care.
