The easiest way to study and understand the Havamal is to read and analyze the poem and its meaning stanza by stanza.  In order to assist you in this task, we have put together a page for each stanza of the Havamal, presenting multiple translations of the same stanza side by side.  We then provide our thoughts and analysis on that particular stanza.  Please understand that these are just our opinions.  Please seek out other sources, think for yourself, and come to your own conclusions.  As you are reading the various translation so the same stanza, look for commonalities and differences in meaning. Keep in mind that there may be several levels of meaning, and various ways that one could interpret each stanza.
