Travel to Solitude and visit the Bards College.

Welcome to the Bards College. I am the headmaster here. How may I help you?

— Viarmo

I'm looking to apply to the college.

— Dragonborn

Always a pleasure to meet a prospective bard.

You should be aware that many apply but we accept very few people.

When possible, we ask applicants to perform tasks the college needs completed. In this case, I do have a task befitting an aspiring bard...

— Viarmo

What do you need me to do?

— Dragonborn

Elisif has forbidden the Burning of King Olaf, a Festival put on by the Bards College. We need to change her mind.

To convince her I want to read King Olaf's Verse. A part of the Poetic Edda, the living history of Skyrim. Unfortunately the verse was lost long ago.

— Viarmo

And that's where I come in?

— Dragonborn

Yes. According to Giraud, our histories keeper, the portion of the Edda dealing with King Olaf might still exist in Dead Man's Respite.

I need you to retrieve the poem.
