Download or read book The Poetics of Commemoration written by Erin Michelle Goeres and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2015 with total page 194 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Poetics of Commemoration is a study of the role poetry played in the commemoration of kings during the Viking Age. From the strange and supernatural deaths described in the poem Ynglingatal, to the depiction of kings entering the pagan afterlife of Valhalla in Eiríksmál and Hákonarmál, it becomes clear that poets sometimes responded to the deaths of kings in a creative and even playful manner. In contrast, memorial poemscomposed for the great Norwegian kings Óláfr Tryggvason and Óláfr Haraldsson record poets' highly emotional reactions to the loss of their lords. This book investigates the variety of ways in which poets responded to the death of a king,and how poetry helped to constructed a shared memory and identity for the community he left behind.
