Abstract

Our goal is to distinguish fragments of different genres with characteristic typical features, realized with the help of a certain set of linguistic methods, as part of the Hyndlolióð, in motivating their interaction and in establishing the similarities and differences of this song with other mythological songs of the “Elder Edda&8j1; . It is possible to state the unique situation that has developed around the Hyndlolióð and consists in its impressive closeness simultaneously to two Eddic songs – Vǫluspá and Vafþrúðnismál. Hyndlolióð can be interpreted as a creation myth, described not in synchrony, as in Vǫluspá, with its numerous tulas, which designate the main actors of cosmogenesis, that is, fix them at a particular moment of the narrative, but in diachrony, within the concept of generation, which uses the genealogical code presented in the Vafþrúðnismál.

Keywords“Elder Eddaˮ, genre, cosmological song, myth of creation, synchrony, diachrony, anthropocentrism, semantic reconstruction, comparative analysis
