Storyboard Text

  • "The Tyger" By William Blake
  • What immortal hand or eye,/ Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
  • Roar!
  • In what distant deeps or skies./ Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
  • What the hand, dare seize the fire?
  • And what shoulder, & what art,/ Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
  • And when thy heart began to beat,/ What dread hand? & what dread feet?
  • Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
  • Did he smile his work to see?
  • The purpose of this poem, with it's dark tone, is to question if Jesus, who had created a simple innocent lamb and child, had also created a fierce tiger. The purpose is to wonder what could have caused a human to change from such innocence to something so fierce. The structure of the poem as well as the fiery, dark  backgrounds fits the description the speaker made about the tiger.
