The Tyger

The Tyger

by William Blake

Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(6) Tree Line

"The Tyger" has plain language, and isn’t particularly hard to read, but the themes are subtle and hard to nail down. It’s not as difficult as some of Blake’s other stuff, which stumps even the most dedicated reader, but it still throws a couple curve balls at you in the form of confusing symbols and foggy references to "he."
