The Tyger Compare And Contrast

156 Words1 Page
Throughout the story, Dick shows several similar characteristics between him and a tiger, one of which is being passionate. A tiger is eager about catching his prey, which is similar to Dick being enthusiastic about his religion. Dick would attend church three times a week and the narrator states "his eyes would be red, as if he had been weeping. We would know, then, that he had been reading his Bible" (Wolfe 726). Dick is seemingly devoted to his religion, however this did not stop him from committing the grave sin of murder. The author declares the line "Tyger Tyger, burning bright" (Blake 1) in "The Tyger." and this also shows that Dick echoes a tiger 's personality. A tiger can be quarrelsome, which Dick displays on the night of the murders.
