I researched the poet William Blake and his poem The Tyger William Blake lived in London at a time of great social and political change the French Revolution which profoundly influenced his writing by making the democratic revolutions in American and France major themes in many of his poems In his poems including The Tyger Blake strived to bring change to both the social order and in the minds of men by going against social standards and looking at Christianity from a different point of view then most at the timeWilliam Blake lived from November 28 1757-August 12 1827 He was the second of five children and born into a middle class family unlike most other poets of the time Blake didnt attend any kind of school before the age of then when he went to drawing school When he was fourteen he went away to be an engravers apprentice until he was 21 He married Catherine Boucher and didnt have any kids with her He lived all of his life in London except for a small time he spent is Sussex People think Blake made it as a poet but he made very little money from his poetry Most of his money came from his paintings and engravings In the last year of his life he wrote 3 major poems Descriptive Catalogue 1809 Public Address 1810 and Vision of the Last Judgment 1810 His last 6 years were spent at Fountain Court where Blake did some of his best pictorial work the illustrations to the Book of Job and his unfinished Dante Encyclopedia of World Biography The period during which Blake lived and did most of his work was 1757-1827 During this time the French Revolution and American Revolution were both going on William Blake stayed in England for the most part but did go to a variety of cities
