Excerpt from The Divine Comedy of Dante: A Version in the Nine-Line Metre of Spenser by George Musgrave; The Inferno, or Hell

The measure of the Italian - the terza rima - has been discarded as too alien to the genius of the English tongue. Even in original poetry (with the notable exception of certain lyrics, Mr. William Morris' Defence of Guinevere, and some fragments of Shelley) the terza rima, down from the time of Surrey, who first attempted to naturalise it, has never proved acceptable to our English taste.
