This paper provides a brief stanza by stanza explication of poem structure and textual meaning of William Blake's poem "The Tyger".

From the Paper:

"The second stanza is a continuation of the speaker's questions regarding this mysterious tyger. Earlier in the first stanza, the speaker acknowledges that there is something "fearful" about this creature. That is why he continues to ask: "In what distant deeps or skies / Burnt the fire of thine eyes?" Again there is the mention of "fire" which coincides with the "burning bright" reference in the first stanza. The last two lines of the stanza: "On what wings dare he aspire? / What the hand dare seize the fire?" repeatedly uses the word "dare" to stress the speaker's now growing awe of the tyger's creator.
