Conclusion “The Lamb” is a Christian poem written by William Blake that utilizes a lamb to symbolize and explain how God created everything in the universe.
In “Little Lamb,” Blake tries to express the importance of knowing one’s creator. Blake says “Little Lamb who made thee? / Dost thou know who made thee” (783)? He uses the image of a lamb to make a common biblical reference to Jesus Christ. Blake reminds the reader that Christ has provided everything from food to clothing to life in general.
ENGL 102-B11 Fall B 2012 John Whitley Turabian Style Thesis Statement William Blake’s poem “Tyger” is a brilliant use of symbolic imagery that seeks to find out who is this mysterious creator of both the lamb and the Tyger. Can the hand that formed the innocent lamb really be the same one that forged the fierce Tyger? Outline I. The main theme of the poem. A.
The Tyger is something more sinister and complicated. Like in this quote “Could twist the sinews of thy heart?/And when thy heart began to beat,/ What dread hand? & what dread feet? (Lines 10-12).” An article by Martin Price, Called Songs of Innocence and Experience, states that “The Lamb, the creator “calls himself a Lamb/ He is meek, & he is mild;/He became a little child.” In The Tyger the creator again is like what he creates… (Martin 17).” Which shows my early statement about Blake’s The Lamb and The Tyger. A similarity between the two poems by Blake would have to be the
The first example in this passage is actually two parallel power struggles, one bwtween Hassan and Assef, and one between the Mullah and the lamb. Amir compares Hassan’s facial expression to that of a lamb in “[I] saw the resignation in [his face]. It was a look I had seen before. It was the look of the lamb.”(76) That lamb is later explained, through Amir’s flashback, to be a ceremonial sacrifice made on Eid Al-Adha. The lamb here, just like almost every other time a lamb has been used in literature, symbolizes Jesus, innocence, and sacrifice.
That’s fairly safe. But I warn you, sir, you can’t compete with all these monkeyshines.”(Lawrence and Lee, 16) By this, Hornbeck means to sound like he is ridiculing the issue of evolutionism referring to the fact that man stemmed from monkeys and referring to it as grandpa. Also the fact that he belittles a serious issue by mocking creationists when speaking on evolutionism, as everyone in this town believes in god. Therefore, Hornbeck’s taunting results in the idea that evolutionism is a joke to him. Hornbeck further continues to ridicule both creationism and evolutionism, sarcastically remarking “How could you ask for better proof than that?
Darwinism, the belief in his theories of evolution was what sealed Cates’s fate. He taught his students of the other possibilities and was misjudged and misunderstood in a small town not seeking change.

This allows the message to sink into the reader. The title of the novel is an obvious indicator to the author’s purpose which is to criticise prejudiced societies and people in the world. The mockingbird symbol is referred to by a variety of characters; from Atticus to Miss Maudie to Mr Underwood who “likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds”. Atticus’s message against harming those who have done no wrong is passed on to his son Jem who advises Scout to let a roly poly bug live “because they don’t bother you.” By doing this, Atticus exhibits that all it takes is the power of one to make a change to overcoming prejudice in people. His courage in defending ‘coloured’ Tom Robinson in a court case and enduring insults such as “nigger-lover,” helped to bring about the beginning of change in Maycomb.
This shows that Tom could not have been the rapist because he has a shriveled up arm and could not have possibly beaten Mayella, while Bob was ambidextrous and a liar. From his carelessness, Mayella a mockingbird at first, has been transformed into a blue jay because she was forced to lie. In the end, Bob wins the trial, but Atticus uses the trial to teach his children the true meaning of a mockingbird. Atticus conveys an important notion to Scout on page 90 of the novel, “It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” By Atticus helping Scout understand what he means, he helps her move toward the right direction in life. However, Bob Ewell, an impudent, incautious, and prevaricator man, ends up ruining his innocuous children’s lives.
Parables are engaging stories that relate to real life circumstances, they illustrate a moral or teaching while adding the interest of a story with characters and plot. Parables have no definite interpretation, they urge people to determine the message individually. (Senior, 1992) One of the parables found in both the gospels of Luke and Matthew is the parable of the Lost Sheep, the reference to sheep is also mentioned by the Prophet Ezekiel in the Old Testament. The Prophet Ezekiel shares the message of God with the people, the message that God has seen the way the leaders and Kings have failed as shepherds. That they abuse and reap benefits from the flock but do not tend and care for them, as
