"One party and the other shall be hungry For thee"

(Canto 15, lines 71-72)

These lines has been interpreted in two ways: either it means both the Blacks and Whites will want Dante on their side, or that both will want to devour him out of hatred. Remembering that the Blacks exiled Dante and the Whites were annoyed at how he was forced to turn his back on them after his exile, the latter is perhaps the most likely explanation, especially since Latini's prophecy deals with things that would occur during Dante's lifetime, and no historical evidence exists that either party ever made an effort to have Dante on their side.
