The Analysis of William Blake's

'The Tyger and the lamb'

William Blake lived 1757 to 1827 and was born and lived in London. As a young boy and throughout his later life Blake experienced many strange and unusual vivid visions, claiming to have seen Angels and ghosts. This I feel has a great relevance in his decision to write poetry about God and mystical beings.

From the age of 10 Blake wanted to be an artist and after training continued mainly engraving. Throughout his life Blake was mainly renowned for his art but later became famous for his poetry .In 1782 he married a woman called Catherine Boucher who introduced him to famous literary figures where he learnt about philosophy and started writing his famous poetry. In 1789 he wrote his first book called the 'Book of Thel' an illuminated edition with pictures. He also wrote and published a poetry collection called 'Songs of Innocence' (which is where 'The lamb' was written.) Then in 1794 he wrote the 'Songs of Experience', which was written to be the second part to his poetry collection with the 'Songs of Innocence' in this 'The Tyger' was written.
