This badly needs references...Zigzig20s 23:13, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
- I'm unable to find any source online to support this analysis:" One interpretation is that The Lamb is a look at childish innocence, and that The Tyger refers to the Devil." All of the critical analyses that I read support the analysis left in the article.--Boweneer (talk) 17:24, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
"Jesus Christ is "The Lamb of God" - Blake makes the animal's name be secondary to Christ's name, seeing Christ was ordained to bear the sins of the world from before eternity; therefore it is called by God's name (not vice versa). We are also called by Christ's name: Child:he is the Son of God - from before eternity and we become God's Children through faith in him. In this way the lamb is called by God's name and the child is called by God's name."
- I've deleted the offending sentences -- they simply don't make any sense. Mattymatt (talk) 03:09, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
Why no text?
The poem is, what, 220 years old? Surely there's no copyright, and the poem is shorter than the article describing it! Why not quote the text of the poem?
