Transkript Poetry Analysis – Gedichtanalyse am Beispiel

Hello, my name is Camilla and I come from England and welcome to the second part of poetry analysis. And this time we are going to use our knowledge in practise. In this video we are going to analyse the Tyger which is a poem by William Blake. Like the first video this one will also only be in english. So have your dictionaries ready. It's probably a good opportunity to learn new words. As I sad in the first video, it's very important to read the poem out loud. So sit back and listen while I read it to you.   Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?   In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? 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 dreed feet?   What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? what dread grasp Dare its deadly terrors clasp?   When the stars threw down their spears And watered heaven with their tears Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the lamb make thee?   Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?   Just one more thing. As you probably notice the word Tyger is spelled with a "y" in this poem. This is the ok form of this spelling, so the old version. You should pay attention to this. When you accounting from the poem, you should write it whit a "y" but if you are just talking about the Tiger you can write it with an "i" in the modern spelling. If you want, it's probably a good idea to listen a couple of times to the poem. So you get a real feel for it. But now we are going to start with the analysis. We will work through in the order that I presented in the first video. That means we start with subject and situation. Under this heading you can write something like this: At first glance, the poem appears to be about a tiger and the fear associated with this animal. The poem describes the feelings of terror, fear and uncertainty. In the poem, there appear to be references to heaven and hell and there is a strong religious theme present. Ok so now let's move on to narrator and characters. The poem is adressed to the tiger. The poem or piece consists of a series of questions that that are placed by the narrator to the tiger. Due to the question structure little is revealed as to the identity of the narrator. This makes it easier/harder to relate to the speaker, as a reader. We can follow this by looking at the rhyme scheme. It it possible to recognise the AABB rhyme scheme in "The Tyger". This is also know as rhyming couplets. The rhyme scheme is regular apart from the coupling of "eye" with "symmetry". This awkward rhyme gives a sense of uneasiness to the poem. It is repeated in the final two lines and thus the reader is left with a feeling of uncertainty. And now lets move on to vocabulary and word order. With words such as "burning", "fire" and "furnace" a fearful image of hell is created. There is a heavy use of vocabulary relating to tools and weapons. This encourages an atmosphere of danger and violence. The religious word choice elevates the subject of the poem to a level beyond mere mortal understanding. And now it would be wise to look at figurative language and imagery. The use of alliteration in "burning bright" and "distant deeps" succeeds in strenghtening the images they are describing. Both "b" and "d" are heavy, dull constants and their repetition gives weight and depth to the piece. The rhetorical questions are left answered. Through this style much is suggested but nothing is concretely told. And now we can move on to the attidude and opinion of the poet. The poet wants to express the mysterious nature of the tiger. Judging by the uncertainly and uneasiness that are conveyed in the piece, it is possible that the poet himself is undecided about what he thinks. The poet seems to both revere and fear the tiger. And we can conclude with your opinion. What do you think of the poem: In my opinion the poem is powerful and engaging. The questions involve the reader and made me consider the subject on a deeper level. The poem had the effect of making me feel excited because of the strong imagery of highs and lows. There is also an atmosphere of fearful anticipation, which I enjoyed. Great! We were almost done. But before we go there is just one more thing we should think about. References! Here are three phrases that you could use when wanting to inculde a quotations or drawing from the poem: 1. This is demonstrated in the quotation... 2. such as when Blake writes... 3. For example, ... It is very important to include quotations from the poem. But I am sure you all now that already. Right! Well we're finished. And I think I might go to the zoo to look at the tiger. So, take care see you soon. Bye.
