Tyger And Lamb 1997 poem

Compare/ Contrast Venn Diagram

You just read two poems by Williams Blake, “The Tyger” and “The Lamb”. Now, you are going to be asked to compare and contrast the two poems in a VENN DIAGRAM (see below).

Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?

What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
