A Divine Image Analysis



Author: Poetry of William Blake Type: Poetry Views: 1472







Cruelty has a human heart,

And Jealousy a human face;

Terror the human form divine,

And Secresy the human dress.



The human dress is forged iron,

The human form a fiery forge,

The human face a furnace sealed,

The human heart its hungry gorge.

.: :.

this poem is opposed to \"the divine image\" (from songs of innnocence)
reading them both we notice that in this one blake eliminaes God.
this condition (of missing God) corresponds to \"experience\" and makes Man bad

i think the theme is that humans hide and cloak their true nature. They don\'t want to accept what and who they are so they are cruel and hide from others. Each line represents flaws of humans and how they can be represented.

.: :.

It uses the form ''chiasmus'' which is the verbal figure of repetition where the second half inverts the elements of the first half; heart/face/divine/dress then dress/divine/face/heart
This suggests a rigidity and permanent nature to the subject matter.

.: :.

Secrecy is forged Iron (it's dress) hard to penetrate concealed
Terror a fiery forge (it's form) it is a contained fury of flame
Jealousy a furnace sealed (it's face) flames burning yet contained within
Cruelty IS the human HEART that burns like a hungry gorge

.: :.

I believe this poem represents how humans basically are, when the poem states "Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face; Terror the human form divine, And Secresy the human dress." It is stating the flaws of humans, humans are cruel, humans get jealous and show it, humans are scary, and humans cant keep secrets they wear it as a dress for all to see. And the last stanza speaks of how humans wont change and are permanent
