  • 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 ...

Starting in 1778 Blake began making a living by giving booksellers and publishers with copperphte engravings. In Blake's later years he began to write The Gat...
  • Human Abstract And Poison Tree
    910 words
    In all five of William Blake's poems there is a clear connection between the outward subjects and the deeper truths they express. The Tiger and The Lamb are actually about a wild and a tame animal, but are really about God's power in creation or the power of the natural world and the nature of God as shown in Jesus. A Poison Tree and The Human Abstract seem to be about mysterious trees with dangerous fruit, but really tell of the "opposing states of the human soul". In the Infant Sorrow the expe...
  • Two Poems The Lamb And The Tyger
    281 words
    For this paper, I was thinking about comparing the two poems The Lamb and The Tyger by William Blake. My thesis for the paper would be something along the lines of in Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, the two poems The Lamb and The Tyger show an interesting transition from "innocence" to "experience". The Lamb is about a God who calls himself a lamb. The God is in fact meek and mild as described throughout the poem. When comparing The Tyger, it seems as though Blake is implying that it ...
