The Tyger

The Tyger


by William Blake

Analysis: Calling Card

Questioning a higher power!

Questioning a higher power! Blake is ALL about questioning, satirizing, lambasting, and often outright attacking the notion of a kind and generous, all-powerful (Christian) God. While "The Tyger" remains too general to nail it down as a critique of the Christian God, it still calls into doubt the ability and power of a being (God or another creator) that should have plenty of both.
