By depicting many creatures of prey in different ways, the poet produces hilarity. It is accomplished by the use of words and emotions. In his heart, the Bengal tiger is never "noble." The leopard kills its victim in a matter of seconds. However, we feel sorry for it, because we know that once captured, it will be shot or poisoned to death.
The lion is king of the jungle and could kill every other creature if it wanted to. But it doesn't do this because it's evil or proud; it does it because it's hungry. If no food were available, the lion would still hunt because it needs to survive too. Its nature is pure, but because of man's destruction of its habitat, the lion has become homeless and must eat whatever it can find.
The fox is clever and crafty. It hides from predators by digging holes for itself to hide in. Then it waits for its prey to fall into the hole before attacking it from behind.
The weasel is very sneaky. It uses its tail like a snake to sneak up on its prey. Then it bites it hard enough to cause bleeding but not so hard that the animal dies immediately.
The mongoose is a small carnivorous mammal found around human dwellings. It eats insects and other small animals that may be harmful to humans.
The poet considers the tiger to be a noble animal since it hunts just to feed its hunger, but the leopard kills for the pleasure of hunting. The word "noble" may also relate to its royal quality. There are many other reasons why the poet calls the tiger a "noble animal".
The poet marvels at the creature's terrifying beauty and wonders what "immortal hand or sight" could have framed it. Take note of the terms "immortal" and "fearful." They represent the tiger's dual status as a symbol of horror and divinity. This ambiguity is important because it captures our imagination—and hearts—as we pursue knowledge about tigers.
Tigers are known for their beautiful markings and large size. Even though this description of the tiger refers to its physical appearance, it also alludes to its power and might. The poet is saying that the tiger is so beautiful and fearsome that only an "immortal" eye or hand could have created it.
Tigers were often used by ancient poets and writers as a metaphor for something terrible but also magnificent. Here, Shakespeare uses the tiger as a metaphor for violence, but it can also stand for ambition or any other dark force that threatens to destroy everything around it.
In conclusion, the tiger is a symbol of terror and majesty all at once. It is something we need in order to keep ourselves safe while still pursuing knowledge about nature.
Leslie Norris, a well-known Welsh poet, wrote the poem "Tiger in the Zoo." The tiger should be prowling in the shadows, searching for prey. When in its native habitat, the tiger normally lurks in the shadows of trees, shrubs, or long grass to await its meal. When chased by hunters, tigers often take refuge in zoos or other confined spaces where they are safe from harm.
Tigers are an endangered species and there are only about 400 remaining in the wild. To protect the tigers, many countries have banned the trade in their body parts. However, some people still hunt the cats for their skin and bones which are used in traditional Chinese medicine. This practice may end up killing the hunter as well since poisoned skins are common among those who illegally sell tiger products.
In conclusion, the tiger is lurking in the shadows because it's hiding from hunters. This poem can also be interpreted as the tiger being trapped in a cage. Since most zoos at one time or another have had unruly animals escape, this interpretation is valid too!
