The Tyger - ... In what furnace was thy brain. What the anvil?” The list of items that the speaker asked about was referring to the tools that a blacksmith uses. This also refers to the ability of forming an amazing creature. In the fifth stanza the speaker asks the tiger what was the reaction of his creator when he saw that his work was finished. This question makes the reader think about how satisfied was the creator when he saw his creation done. In the sixth stanza, the omitting of the word “could” and replacement of the word “dare”, creates the question, “What immortal hand or eye, dare frame thy fearful symmetry?” The gist of this question is all about who in the world dares to create such an animal that is beautiful but ferocious at the same time....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

William Blake's The Tyger - William Blake's The Tyger Terror, in the eighteenth century, was commonly considered the highest manifestation of sublimity. "Indeed," writes Edmund Burke in his Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful (1757), "terror is in all cases whatsoever, either more openly or latently, the ruling principle of the sublime."(1) In Section VII of his aesthetic treatise, Burke tries to explain why this is so: "Whatever is fitted in any sort to excite the ideas of pain, and danger, that is to say, whatever is in any sort terrible, or is conversant about terrible objects, or operates in a manner analogous to terror, is a source of the sublime; that is, it is productive of the strongest emotion which the mind is capable of feeling" (39)....   [tags: The Tyger Philosophy Literature Papers]

The Good and Evil - ... Although the Tyger represents evil and Hell, it is too simplistic to say “The Tyger” is Hell just because of the depth of language. Within the poem, “The Tyger” the language uses harsh tones but this cannot allow the reader to assume that is all there is to the poem. Moreover, the tiger is an image of experience which is darkness and pain, and not only Hell. Though darkness and pain are present in Hell, those sufferings are also here on Earth yet it is not said that Hell is on Earth. The tiger in the poem implies that the creator of the creation is evil and destructive but the creator must be both daring and foolhardy, creative and destructive, good and evil....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

He got into trouble with the law for saying, “Damn the King and damn all his subjects!” (From a biography of Blake). Blake was also influenced by the religion Buddhism in the verse: ‘He who bends to himself a Joy Doth the winged life destroy; But he who kisses the Joy as it flies Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.’ One of Blake’s favoured poems is ‘The Tiger’ of the ‘Songs of Experience’....   [tags: English Literature] 1145 words
