Well, I know that the "Lamb" is a poem from the Songs of Innocence.

The poem "Lamb" is a religious poem, similarly, with the other poem.
A lamb represents purity and goodness in a child because lambs are usually white and innocent looking. The poem speaks about Christ.
The poem is written in a form of questions and replies.
Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee ..

Little Lamb I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb I'll tell thee!

Now the other poem "Tyger" is a poem from the Songs of Experience. Tyger represents Christ power. A tyger is a strong animal. It's a poem with a dark and doubtful tone. (Amazed with God's power and abilities). The poem indicates to power and strength.

I need help finding information oon my author, William Blake and I also need help explicating the sick rose. I mean, everyone has their own meaning to the poem, but I need some extra input. If you have a better idea or a better pom that you think I should explicate then write me and let me know. I have to have an explication for World Literature II. I would appreciate any type of help that you offer. If you e-mail me back, make sure the message reads, "Alicia You Wrote Me About This!!" This will allow me to know what I am about to read before I read it because I skip over some e-mail because I think that it is junk mail. I thsnk you once again.
