Excerpt from The Divine Comedy

Every fresh attempt at translating the Di vine Comedy affords proof of Dante's asser tion that nothing harmonized by a musical bond can be transmuted from its own speech without losing all its sweetness and harmony. The coalescence of the music and the meaning of the verse, in the perfection of which the life of poetry consists, cannot be transferred from one tongue to another. A new harmony may be substituted, but the difference is fatal. The translation may have a life of its own, but it is not the life of the original.
