Excerpt from The Purgatory of Dante Alighieri: Edited With Translation and Notes

As to the question of translating poetry into prose, which I was at some pains to justify twelve years ago, the time that has since elapsed has made such translations so familiar that I may be excused from retaining what I then said. I may perhaps remark here, that where a question has arisen between a literal and an elegant rendering, I have preferred the former 5 my object being, as I have said, not to attempt an addition to English literature, but to aid beginners in understanding that of Italy. Also, wherever it seemed possible to render an Italian word or idiom by a cognate form in English, I have not scrupled to do so, even at the cost of an occasional archaism.
