This is a reading of William Blake’s poem, The Tyger. It is the sister poem to The Lamb, which described innocence. This poem describes a primal ferocity, but suggests that the tiger is no more or less evil than the lamb, that they are both part of nature and what it means to be human, and must learn to coexist, rather than dominate the other.
