tent'ancora can be translated as "try again" in English. As Dante encounters the ferocious leopard, lion and she-wolf in the dark wood, he turns on his heal in fear.
I was put in fear by the sight of a lion.
It seems as though it was coming towards me,
with its head high and a ferocious hunger,
so much that even the air trembled with fear of it.
Despite his fear, he must tent'ancora. Virgil reassures him with a dose of tough love; making it clear that he must put his cowardice aside. The necklace is a wayward shell, ready to confront the dark wood again.
