Watercolour illustration by Daniel Mackie. Why are things that are so deadly so beautiful? This is one of the questions at the heart of William Blake's famous poem, ‘The Tyger’, published in 1794. Blake explores the duality between aesthetic beauty and primal ferocity. Blake’s philosophy is summarised in a question: Did he that make the lamb also make the tiger? Humanity's struggle is based on the concept of the contrary nature of things. Truth, his poetry suggests, lies in comprehending the contradictions between innocence and experience.
