The Tyger Ana Melching 5-8-99 Does god create both gentle and fearful creatures If he does what right does he have Both of these rhetorical questions are asked by William Blake in his poem The Tyger The poem takes the reader on a journey of faith questioning god and his nature The poem completes a cycle of questioning the creator of the tyger discussing how it could have been created and then returns to questioning the creator again Both questions about the tygers creator are left unanswered William Blake uses rhythm rhyme and poetic devices to create a unique effect and to parallel his theme in his work The Tyger William Blakes choice of rhythm is important to his poem The Tyger because it parallels the theme of the poem that the tyger may have been made by god or another harsher creator Most of the poem is written in trochaic tetrameter as can be seen in line three when Blake says What immortal hand or eye This rhythm is very harsh sounding exemplifying the very nature of the tyger Some of the lines in the poem were written in iambic tetrameter such as in line ten when Blake says Could twist the sinews of thy heart
