Thanks to the diligence of some workshop participants, here are a few youtube versions of Blake’s “Tiger, Tiger, burning bright.” There are  interesting directions you could go with this poem, as classes lead up to the holiday; at the very least, some of the compelling lines might attach themselves to some ears and minds.


-What happens with such re-mediations?

-Which of these is most true to the spirit of the original?  -What adds something more? or subtracts?

-How might you remediate a poem we have studied?

-What are some possible directions for visual and aural aspects?

-Are different kinds of ‘knowing’ operative when the poem is transformed in these ways?
