Maybe a little different from our regular posts. But I felt the need to share it. As The Tyger presents a duality between aesthetic beauty and primal ferocity. And Blake believed that to see one, the hand that created the lamb, one must also see the other, the hand that created 'the tyger'.
'Did he who made the Lamb make thee?'
Blake thought each man must first see and then resolve the contrary of existence and life. And therefore, 'The Tyger' presents a poem of triumphant human awareness. After all, we all have our own 'tyger' and 'lamb' within us. It's the one we feed the most that will win the day!
