“The Tyger” is a poem made of questions. There are no less than thirteen question marks and only one full sentence that ends with a period instead of a question mark. Addressing “The Tyger,” the speaker questions it as to its creation – essentially: “Who made you Mr. Tyger?” “How were you made? Where? Why? What was the person or thing like that made you?”
The story starts with the tiger being questioned about his creator, then his creation, then the tools of his creation, then the whys and the why reallys. Finally, the sixth restates the central question while raising the stakes; rather than merely question what/who could create the Tyger, the speaker wonders: who dares.
