BRIGHT TIGERS

Going home…Hovis Bread, introduced a generation to The New World Symphony. British Airways, sadly, tarnished the Bell Song from Lakme. The Three Tenors, for the Italian Football World Cup, introduced Nessun’ Dorma from Turandot, to a massive audience.

The return of Tiger Woods to the golf scene could be introducing a large audience, I hear, to William Blake’s –

Tyger Tyger, Burning Bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Circa: 1794.

The work is contained in Blake’s collection, Songs of Experience. (There are another five verses).

Despite the interesting metaphor, could there be an unexpected surge of poetic interest being harnessed?
