This essay accepts Patrick Fuery’s challenge to “get directly engaged in issues of typology” when considering absence. The powers of lost lovers, slain gods, and howling voids in Old Norse literature are anatomized according to the many phenomena denoted by the word “absence.” Demonstrating several species and differing degrees of absence, the essay also shows how each is created by a particular mechanism, and each tends towards specific emotional consequences. Each species of typology is illustrated with examples taken from Old Norse literature; yet its various types may well be applied beyond such contexts.
