'What is This Divinity That Surrounds Us?\r'
'Should we embrace it or idolize its tidy plan?\r\nIn the metrical compositions, Ã¢â¬Å"The TygerÃ¢â¬Â by William Blake and Ã¢â¬Å"DesignÃ¢â¬Â by Robert cover they marvel and fear this endeavor, ultimately deviation the reader with more questions than answers. Each poet portrays irony, extended dustup, imagery, and intelligent design while nerve-wracking to envision god and and his creations. Lets explore the similarities among each poets poem, first beginning with imagery.\r\nThe usance of this particular animal and insects provides a undimmed in depth analysis. This appeals to the readers sense experiences to jockstrap them perceive what the writer is trying to convey. Blakes statement, Ã¢â¬Å"Burnt the kick upstairs of thine lookÃ¢â¬Â, lucubrates a sense of fear of the tiger. He wants to know by whom such a creature was created. Surely God would have not created roundthing so fe bed.\r\nIn the third stanza Blake haves, In what distant enigmatical or skies.Ã¢â¬Â Deep in this sense we assume is organism applied to the underworld. rime states something similar to this, Ã¢â¬Å"What save design of iniquity to appall?Ã¢â¬Â The Ã¢â¬Å"designerÃ¢â¬Â or Ã¢â¬Å" ever-living handÃ¢â¬Â must have pestiferous intentions because he showms to be associated with some grade of non- ashenness.\r\nThe imagery both poets remaining in my mind was the use of nature to illustrate thither point. I could not help only if to think the animals were a illustration for humans. Some people live sensitive quiet lives while others are are murders and rapists. How can both sets of people grapple from one God who is purely unspoilt of soberness?\r\nThey are seeking to see if in some way Gods design is flaw; but how can that be coming from a divine being? The imagery can be seen as frightful yet beautifully realistic, and the language used to describe the animals are simplistic and powerful. Theres an emphasis on the animals power but at the same time this could be seen as Gods power being conveyed by dint of this animal and insects.\r\nUltimately, the violence and ferocity of the tiger and bird of passage are vivid, terrifying, and has a deep, dark undertone to them. poetic language is used by both poets as well. According to Websters dictionary, figurative language is a language that uses manner of speaking or expressions with a meaning that is opposite from the literal interpretation.\r\nWe see morals of this all passim both poems. Starting with Blakes poem, it reads Ã¢â¬Å"Tyger! Tyger! burning sassy in the forest of the night.Ã¢â¬Â Here the tiger is not very boring, its more so used as a fiction to demonstrate its ferociousness, or it can also be seen as the tigers appearance.\r\nThe yellowness of its eyes mixed with its orange fur in the night could remind one of fire. In design the word white is mentioned some(prenominal) times. This is unique because white is usually associated with good and pur ity, yet all throughout this poem it alludes to something dark and evil. Ã¢â¬Å"Like a white piece of rigid satin clothÃ¢â¬Â, the spider holds up the moth as in some sort of victory it has obtained.\r\nThe spider who is seen as evil has now triumphed over the moth who is viewed as good. This ties back into that design is either flawed or has a dark facial expression to it. Another place we see an example of this in the poem is when Frost states, Ã¢â¬Å"On a white heal-all, holding up a moth.Ã¢â¬Â After doing some look into I discovered a heal-all is actually blue sky in appearance and is know for its medicinal use.\r\nThis demonstrates irony because the spider is preparing the moth for its end on something that is meant to heal. Later on in the poem, line ten, the heal-all is now blue. Ã¢â¬Å"The wayside blue and innocent heal-all.Ã¢â¬Â Initially the poet just describes the flower, here he proclaims its innocence, implying the flower had zipper to do with it being white.\ r\nTherefore this was the work of its designer. Figurative language as well as irony is seen throughout both poems as a way to hyperbole and understand the poets outlook more vividly.Lastly, we come to intelligent design, which seems to be the overall theme of both poets. Each questions Gods purpose from a Christians viewpoint.\r\nThey ask a series of questions seeking to think or understand this divine design seen in nature. To the readers dismay though, the questions go unanswered. The questions are only presented, I believe it was left up to the reader to truly seek, in a philosophic way, the answers to the questions.\r\nThe real philosophical question seems to be, Ã¢â¬Å"Why?Ã¢â¬Â Did all these events make pass by chance or did a complex entity bring it all approximately? We get the sense from each poet that there is a higher being tail end the spider and the tiger, be he deems to be far to complex for our understanding.\r\nIn conclusion, I leave you with a quote from v illage that draws into what I feel both poets were fundamentally trying to get at. Ã¢â¬Å"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.Ã¢â¬Â Just perhaps it is not our creator and his design who is flawed, but us from our outlook on nature that is flawed.\r\n'
