The Tower of Hunger (Canto XXXII-XXXIII) Lyrics

10. The Tower of Hunger (Canto XXXII-XXXIII) (5:47)
smoke and burning air unravel
just one standing above another
teeths to the bones, eating him out
everlasting feral meal

Dante focused on the figure of a damned biting another’s neck: count Ugolino.
jaws drowning into living blood
claws in deep, making him despair
only echoes of hate
while time wipes all but the pain

"e se non piangi, di che pianger suoli?"

Literal quote
such a sighting pushes my heart
feeding courage to ask the reason
as he raises head from torture
tears start melting with the blood

Dante can’t stand the sight
cleaning mouth with his victim’s hair
he will tell his desperation
an infame betrayer
such grief to brake a heart down

Ed ecco son qui guardo fuori da questo pertugio
la luce morra', nella torre restiamo serrati
il domani sara' noncurante del nostro destino
e poi .... e poi .... e poi .........

Ugolino is talking: locked inside the tower, cries in despair because he realizes he’ll die there
pale moonlight shines on,
revealing on him gracility of need,
door locked forever

blind eyes in tears
my hurt palms on their bodies
not a breathe, neither a mere heartbeat
And Surrender to sorrow

Count Ugolino, prisoner inside the tower with his sons, tells about his feelings
alas pisa! people disgrace
neighbours so slow and lazy...
if only the two islands could
unite and wall arno up
to make you sink, people drowning
maybe guilty,
but can be his innocent souls
considered the same?
modern thebes

Dante’s invective against Pisa, guilty for having reiterated the same crimes Thebe’s had, imprisoning the Count (guilty for giving away important castles) along with his sons: blameless for the early age.
