  • Lamb William Blake Summary The Poem
    566 words
    The Lamb - William Blake Summary The poem begins with the question, 'Little Lamb, who made thee?' The speaker, a child, asks the lamb about its origins: how it came into being, how it acquired its particular manner of feeding, its 'clothing' of wool, its 'tender voice. ' In the next stanza, the speaker attempts a riddling answer to his own question: the lamb was made by one who 'calls himself a Lamb,' one who resembles in his gentleness both the child and the lamb. The poem ends with the child b...
  • Lamb's Godlike Quality And Innocence
    664 words
    A time lost in it's own morals, seeks refuge in the knowledge and innocence of the past. William Blake used direct dictation through his poem, "THE LAMB", in disseminating his theorem, which we, humans, seek to find peace within our selves only after reestablishing our identity with something pure. In the poem William Blake uses the Lamb, as a vessel, to interpret the innocence, we would seek to use. The speaker is seeking answers to his questions, about how the lamb gained such natural innocenc...
  • Poems Use Of A Realistic Setting
    1,126 words
    The sonnet London, 1802 written by William Wordsworth, and The Lamb written by William Blake both contain elements of Romanticism. Both of the poems clearly follow a structure similar to Abrams Romantic formula, which is composed of a realistic setting, visionary experience, and return to a setting with insight. Both London, 1802 and The Lamb are composed of the above elements yet they differ in their approach to each element. Each poem has its unique atmosphere or tone. This leads one to be abl...
  • Speaker Towards The Lamb
    770 words
    The lamb is a symbol of innocence, ignorance, purity, and self justification. In William Blake's poem The Lamb, children are biblically innocent and the speaker contrast himself to the higher divinity. In this interpretation of children the speaker may possibly be trying to use ignorance as an excuse for sin in his life. The lamb's natural gifts are clearly envied by the speaker, the gifts being food, shelter, and happiness. William Blake may have used this scene of fertile valleys to allow the ...

    Many poems written by the same author often have similar themes. The authors usually believe in something very strongly and their poems usually reflect such a nature. Sometimes poets reflect aspects of their personal life in their poems. In the poems "The Lamb" and "The Tiger", by William Blake, the poet discusses similar themes in both. In the poem "The Lamb", I interpret that William Blake discusses many points questioning creation and religion. He describes the lamb as being an object of inno...

  • Poem The Lamb
    701 words
    Blakes selection of poetry, 'Songs of Innocence and of Experience' includes a variety of contrasting paired poems. In this essay I will be comparing 'The Lamb' and 'The Tiger'. These poems, like the majority of the other poems in the book, contain themes of religion, and creation. 'The Lamb' appears to be rather childish and simple, 'Little lamb who made thee?', however when you explore the poem in more depth, it is complex. The poem has high lyrical value, due to the repetitions, so Blake may h...
  • Tyger And The Lamb

    Innocence vs. Evil The Tyger and The Lamb reveal Blake's interest in depicting opposites. Each item symbolizes things that are opposites. The Lamb represents good and peace, while portraying the illusion of a Godly figure. The Tyger represents evil, but in the same matter is able to show itself as a somewhat creation ary figure. As displayed many times throughout both poems, "The Lamb" and "The Tyger" move back and forth between creation and destruction, the ingenious function is that Blake uses...

In Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, it seems that there are opposing views of God in the poems of The Tyger and The Lamb. The speaker in each poem shows their view of God himself. In The Tyger, it seems like the speaker is wondering if God can be both loving and angry, where as the speaker in The Lamb seems to sa...
