Kennings are a Norse poetic device based on analogy - referring to the
sea as a "whale road", for example, from the analogy that "sea is to whale
as road is to horse".
The symmetrical nature of any four kenning elements allows
for the exploration of other, logically valid metaphors - following the
structure of Ron Hale-Evans'
, this site automates that process.
Old Kennings now get deleted after a while - consider this a forum for
mucking around with them in real-time with other online friends, or just
playing around with the idea.
