What does "fearful symmetry" mean in "The Tyger"?
The term "fearful symmetry" in "The Tyger" refers to the paradox that the Tyger is both beautiful and frightening, using its beauty, balance, and grace to act as a ruthless predator. Why are beauty and evil joined in this creature to burn "bright?" This poem, unlike its companion piece, "The Lamb," raises questions about the nature of God that it does not answer.
