  • Explained Imagery In William Blake's The Lamb And The Tiger

    William Blake is the author of both “The Lamb” and “The Tiger”. Using well worded imagery and setting the appropriate tone for each, Blake described the sweet lamb in one poem and the wildly ferocious tiger in the other. By reading these poems, it is indicated that they both are describing God as sweet and wild. The reason I believe the author chose the lamb is because Jesus called himself a lamb. He was the perfect lamb who gave himself as a sacrifice for all the sins of the world. I think that the author used tiger rather than the lion, which is what God is also called, because the tiger is larger and stronger than a lion. God is referred to as a lion because that was the most feared animal in the time and place of the Israelites, were as now, we are familiar with all animals and know that the tiger is greater than the lion. The imagery that creates the tone of “The Lamb” is well preserved as gentle, peppy, and you could say soothing. In line 6, “Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing wooly bright” you can easily imagine a tiny newborn Lamb with the softest of soft white cozy blanketed fur (line 6). You just want to cuddle gently with this tiny living creature for forever, just like in the picture above (fig. 1.). Line 7-8, “Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice!” obviously indicated how peppy the lamb is (lines 7-8). When parents have a child, this child brings them so much joy by everything he does as he grows up. By the way he talks, by…
