Invert the redirection?
The article for the poem of the Poetic Edda Rígsþula is redirected to this one. First of all, logic would want an article who's content is 95% about the poem to be called the name of the poem (Rígsþula), and not that of the main protagonist of the poem (Rig). Also, this article should be called Rígsþula because all the other eddaic poems have their own article (with the poem's name as the article's title!) and the main protagonist has his own little article on the side. Example : Vafþrúðnismál (Vafþrúðnir's sayings) is the name of the article and of the poem. And the main character, Vafþrúðnir has his own very little article just in case... Its like this with all the other eddaic poems, and should be the same with this one.
- Karl's wife. She's in the article as Snör. There will be a pause while I investigate alternate spellings and what links here. Yngvadottir (talk) 18:59, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
- There; I added an alternate spelling of her name (found in Lee M. Hollander's widely cited translation) and the anglicization, did a little other tweaking, and tried to make sure all the offspring and spouses link to this article or have redirects here. There are far too many to boldface them all. There are double redirects via the various spellings of the god's name, especially Ríg (Norse god) left over from the era referred to in the section above, when this article was at that title; I left these because the best solution is probably to make a small stand-alone article on Rígr. Hope this is now clearer, in any event; removing the "incomplete" template. Yngvadottir (talk) 19:42, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
From the new section "Historical significance":
- In fact, Konr gets his power directly Rig and the idea of a king is therefore one who is blessed by the gods, though not necessarily descended from them in the strict patrilineal fashion typical of Western monarchies.
I presume "from Rig" or "through Rig" is meant?
- The very different ways in which these three classes are represented both physically and in terms of their activities that implication of the etiological myth of Rígsþula the three classes are essentially different species.
Something is missing in this sentence (after "activities"), but I'm not sure what exactly is to be added here. A verb, for starters, but I think more is needed. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 14:49, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
