The interpretation of the kenning "djuproduls odla" presents more difficulties.
Interpretative difficulties aside, it would seem to be this final reading which is taken up by Gilchrist Brodeur--"the wave's freehold" is the sea (composed of "djup" and "odla," "deep-fatherland") and its sun ("rodull") is treasure or a "trove." Borges renders this simply as "el tesoro." The debates over the interpretation of such cruxes in skaldic poetry requires a training that we can be fairly sure had not been available to Borges and so we may forgive him for sidestepping such issues.
