che ‘nfino ad essa li pare ire in vano

Purgatorio 1.118-120

Noi andavam per lo solingo piano
com’ om che torna a la perduta strada,
che ‘nfino ad essa li pare ire in vano.

Longfellow:
Along the solitary plain we went
As one who unto the lost road returns,
And till he finds it seems to go in vain.
