For if Count Ugolino was reputed
to have betrayed your [Pisa’s] fortresses, there was
no need to have his sons endure such torment.
O Thebes renewed, their years were innocent
and young – Brigata, Uguiccione, and
the other two my song has named above! (Inf. XXXIII, 85-90)
[Fra Alberigo to Dante]: "But now reach out your hand; open my eyes."
And yet I did not open them for him;
and it was courtesy to show him rudeness. (Inf. XXXIII, 148-150)
He [Lucifer] wept out of six eyes; and down three chins,
tears gushed together with a bloody froth.
Within each mouth – he used it like a grinder –
with gnashing teeth he tore to bits a sinner,
so that he brought much pain to three at once. (Inf. XXXIV, 34-57)
