“The Tyger” By William Blake Review

The speaker directly addresses a tiger, imagining its bright flashes of color in the dark night-time forest. The speaker asks which immortal being could possibly have created the tiger’s fearsome beauty. The speaker wonders in which far-off depths or skies the tiger’s fiery eyes were made.

This one was pretty okay poem but still it was far from the Edgar Allan Poe and H.P Lovecraft level. 

The plot in this poem was okay but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the concept, so many that’s why I only gave it 3 star. 

This poem is the generic poem everyone thinks about when they think about a poem. Because it has archaic language. It has a lot of religious imagery and it has the very strict rhyming schemes.

I give this poem 3 / 5
