In form and content, "The Tyger" also parallels the Biblical book of Job.

Job, too, was confronted by the sheer awe and power of God, who asks the suffering man a similar series of rhetorical questions designed to lead Job not to an answer, but to an understanding of the limitations inherent in human wisdom.

The soft vowel sounds and repetition of the “l” sound may also convey the soft bleating of a lamb.

The repetition and alliteration “Little Lamb” also brings out the innocence and tenderness.

A lamb is similar to the child and hence in the first stanza of the poem the narrative voice asks questions such as “Little Lamb who made thee”, “thou know who made thee” and is trying to learn the new things which was not known before, this is answered in the second stanza as “Called by thy name”, “calls himself a Lamb” and “God bless thee”.

While the narrative voice in the other poem knows much better and asks how can someone so calm and tender make such an immortal and ferocious animal as well and is that person happy or sad, “What immortal hand or eye/Could frame thy fearful symmetry” and “Did he smile his work to see/water’d heave with their tears”.

It shows the simplicity and honesty of a lamb as well as death and immortality of a tiger.

In “The Lamb” the rhyme scheme is “thee”, “feed” and “mead”, “mild” and “child”, keeping the rhymes simple Blake conveys the tone of childlike wonder and the singsong voice of innocent boys and girls.
