  • Jennifer's Tigers By Adrienne Rich Aunt
    1,303 words
    Aunt Jennifer's Tigers By Adrienne Rich Aunt Jennifer's tigers stride across a screen Bright topaz denizens of a world of green. They do not fear the men beneath the tree; They pace in sleek chivalric certainty. Aunt Jennifer's fingers fluttering through her wool Find even the ivory needle hard to pull. The massive weight of uncle's wedding band Sits heavily upon Aunt Jennifer's hand. When Aunt is dead, her terrified hands will lie Still ringed with ordeals she was mastered by The tigers in the ...
  • Chaos Into The Fourteen Lines
    803 words
    In just one paper, I am going to go from two inspirational poems, to a more depressing one. The inspirational poem I will be responding to is "The Tyger", written by William Blake. This piece is by far one of my favorite poems read. I read it often just to remind me not to wimp around with my lifting and my getting bigger, just like the song by Survivor, "Eye of the Tiger", does for me. It keeps in mind what it's going to take to do this. The second piece of inspiration I like is, "I will put Ch...
  • Terrified Aunt Jennifer And The Third Stanza
    1,097 words
    The mid twentieth century American poet Adrienne Rich was a product of a conservative Southern family. Rich's poem, Aunt Jennifer's Tigers clearly reflects this gender struggle, for it is evident that it is a feminist poem in which the poet criticizes the male-dominated world for frightening and oppressing Aunt Jennifer, leaving her no alternative but to create an alternate world of freedom for herself with her sewing. The main theme of Aunt Jennifer's Tigers is to reveal the hidden, vibrant inn...
  • Blake's Tiger
    1,430 words
    Blake's legendary poem "The Tyger" is deceivingly straightforward. Though Blake uses "vividly simple language" (Hirsch, 244), the poem requires a deeper understanding from the reader. There are many misconceptions concerning the symbols in "The Tyger" (specifically the tiger itself). This often leads to confusion concerning the underlying message of the poem. Compared to Blake's "meek" and "mild" lamb, the tiger is hard to accept. It is a symbol for that which people fear. For some, their fears ...
  • Fight Back
    745 words
    Moon Tiger - Denise Lever tov The Moon tiger in the room here it came in, it is prowling sleekly under and over the twin beds See its small head silver smooth, hear the pad of its large feet. Look, its white stripes in the light that slid through the jalousies It is sniffing our clothes, its cold nose nudges our bodies. THe beds are narrow but I'm coming in with you. The title is called moon tiger, although it may not literally mean a real tiger. I believe that the author of the poem is referrin...
  • 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...
  • Aunt Jennifer
    863 words
    In what ways do two of these poems represent women? The different means, in which women represent women in society, are displayed in conflicting situations that revolve around the central historical and personal context. Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Adrienne Rich's views are shown clearly in their poetry, "How do I love thee?" and "Aunt Jennifer's Tigers". The feeling of being emotionally open and free to feel what they like, are being conflicted by the beliefs of women being oppressed and sil...
