    One thought on “Tyger, Tyger”

    1. Heard Blake at primary school, all the obvious ones such as Jerusalem, Tyger Tyger etc.His poetry evokes vivid memories from when I was young, but that is what it should achieve, an evocation of the past.I miss my mum and dad.

    2. Thơ của William Blake giàu chất nhạc nên đọc thích ghê, nhiều khi có cảm tưởng như có thể hát theo luôn vậy.

    3. Difícil el inglés pero tiene un poema que se llama The Schoolboy que es de lo más hermoso que he leído.

    4. القصيدة الجميلة جداً لويليام بليك تقول :- النمرُ ! النمر ! أيها القط البري يا من تشتعلُ بهاءً في الغاباتِ الليلية أي أيد ٍ وعيون ٍ أبدية شكلت هذا الجمال البري في عذوبة ٍ وعفوية ؟من أشعلَ النارَفي تلكَ العيون ِ العسلية ؟وبأي أعماق ٍ أو سماواتٍ علوية شكلت هذا الجمال وأي جناح ٍ يجر [...]

    5. I read this poem for my Issues in Literature course.Loved it! The writer reflects in awe of a Creator who could, at once, create the tenderness of a lamb and the ferocity of the tiger. Asking the quintessential question of how good and evil co-exist. As a Christian, I personally enjoyed the depiction of a 'blacksmith' which for me, literally brought the scripture of Isaiah 54:16 to life!A pondering read for all for sure! An excellent read for all.

    6. Pro mě ne vždy zcela pochopitelné básně. Přidám-li k tomu romantismus hraničící s naivitou, pak z celého výběru mě opravdu zaujalo básní jen pár.

    7. I was first introduced to William Blake in 2015; right at the start of my university degree. I read the entirety of his Songs of Innocence and Experience and loved it. I haven’t read him since completing an essay on his poem ‘The Chimney Sweeper’ (from the second phrase of his collection) in 2016. I was needing my fill, so I picked up this Little Black Classic. It didn’t hold a lot of my favourite poems by him, but it did hold some. It also held some new poetry by him that I’ve never r [...]

    8. This poem is a very interesting one, William Blake is questioning The Tyger on who his creator is. A very controversial poem back in his time and I would think it still would be considered controversial. He is questioning the authority of God and his question changes from "Could frame thy fearful symmetry?" to "Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?" Is he hinting at The Tyger the possibility of it being God ?

    9. Vol 89 of my Penguin Little Black Classics Box Set that I've read previously (2015). For more on Blake's Songs of Innocence/Songs of Experience , go here.

    10. Wow, I never knew how morbid Blake was. The old English aside,I did enjoy how pessimistic he could be. The recurring titles are a little confusing though, perhaps it's time for me to do more in-depth study of poetry.

    11. Very surprised abt how much I enjoyed this considering the amount of times the poems were about weeping mothers, crying infants and god's lambs or whatever

    12. I really enjoyed this poem and how it relates the tyger to God. This poem raises many different interesting questions through its analysis.

    13. When one thinks of the great poems in literature, this is right up at the top. You will not go wrong taking a few minutes to add this to your read list.

    14. MEH this was a pretty average read (I'd say 2.5 stars). Poetry is still pretty hard for me to read and analyze and to form an opinion on But I'll try my best.I loved Blake's rhymes and the you could see a clear connection between his poems in Songs of Innocence vs Songs of Experience and how for example in The Songs of Innocence the described animals were mostly lambs and in The Songs of Experience he talked about tygers and wilder animals. I really liked the poem A Dream Once a dream did weave [...]

    15. I've found a striking interpretation of William Blake's poem. First of all, I am glad that Waldman or his editor, whichever, retained the poem word for word. "The Tyger" is a good poem to tell over multiple pages as the rhyming couplets are complete thoughts in perfect rhythm. Waldman breaks down each concept for thought and creates a loaded read using visuals.The words are printed in a lovely script; with the look of a brush pen it is reminiscent of both manuscript culture and Europe's growing [...]

    16. I thought that this poem was very hard to understand the meaning. I also think that this would be hard for elementary kids to understand and would probably be for 4th and 5th graders. I had to search the poem online to figure out what it was talking about. I read that it has to do God and questions why is there pain and bloodshed in the world? After reading about the poem I realized that although the book has picture this poem would be extremely hard for elementary kids to comprehend. Thus, I wo [...]

    17. Tyger! Tyger! burning bright (A)In the forests of the night (A)What immortal hand or eye (B)Could frame thy fearful symmetry? (B)In what distant deeps or skies (C)Burnt the fire of thine eyes? (C)On what wings dare he aspire? (D)What the hand dare sieze the fire? (D)- Trochaic Tetrameter-----------------------------------------------------------------------And what shoulder, & what art,Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat,What dread hand? & what dread fee [...]

    18. I saw this stanza in the random quotes GoodReads advertises. “Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?”And I recognized it immediately. This stanza brought back memories of my dreaded English class in high school. I never enjoyed English. In fact, I struggled with it.Intently . So it seems a shock to me that a seemingly random quote stirs up a positive memory about my English Class. I really don't remember what it i [...]

    19. "What immortal hand or eyeCould frame thy fearful symmetry?"At first Blake asks whocouldcreate this frightening creature of paradox; where both the good and the evil are symmetrical to a point of disturbing balance the two can co-exist within one another.Then, "What immortal hand or eye Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?"Now Blake asks not who could, but rather, whowouldcreate such a being. Remarkable. Chilling. Intellectually forceful. Recommend for those looking for literary inspiration.

    20. This poem consists of a mere six stanzas that are each four lines long. The first and last stanzas are the exact same, except for a change in a word. I only noticed this after reading it a few times. I will admit that I had more questions than comments about the poem after I read it multiple times. I do not think that this poem would be a favorite among students. Many would probably not know the meaning of the poem, only after intense analysis and discussion of the symbols in the story would the [...]

    21. One of my favourite poems since sixth grade I love how successive parts of the subject are revealed , only to unveil " It " in all its unabashed glory at the fitting finale !!!! When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears, Did he smile his work to see?Did he who made the lamb make thee?

    22. Well, of course, this poem is all about the wonders of God, it still resonates with me, on a more nature-centered ideal. The fearsome, powerful, perfect tiger inspires many, and anyone with even a modicum of respect for the big cat would appreciate this poem's portrayal of the creature. A poem truly worthy of the jungle's true king.

    23. Helikopter Yayınevi'nin kitaplarının arka kapak yazılarını sinir bozucu buluyorum, özellikle Yourcenar'ın Bir Ölüm Bağışlamak kitabının arka kapağında kitabın neredeyse baştan sona anlatılmasını sinir bozucu buluyorum. Levent Yılmaz'ın arka kapak yazılarını sinir bozucu buluyorum

    24. DNF. Came because of Lila's reference to this in A Gathering of Shadows, left because the overt Christian imagery turns me off. Also covert racismbut this is A Classic so hey what did you expect, really.
