Teaching The Tyger

The Tyger

"The Tyger" is a poem by the English poet William Blake published in 1794 as part of the Songs of Experience collection. It is one of Blake's most reinterpreted and arranged works. Blake achieves great power through the use of alliteration combined with imagery, and he structures the poem to ring with incessant repetitive questioning, demanding of the creature, "Who made thee?".
