Likewise, people ask, what the hammer what the chain?
Blake uses the metaphor of the blacksmith, who forms metal with a hammer, furnace (fire), and anvil. The stanza is very rhythmic, adding further to the chant-like quality that we talked about in lines 1-2.
Beside above, why do the stars threw down their spears? Next come the two lines in question: “When the stars threw down their spears / And water'd heaven with their tears”. The previous stanzas implied a process of technological advancement, starting with the Promethean theft of the fire, advancing to rope-making, and then using the flame for metallurgy.
Also, which is immortal eye or hand?
The "immortal hand or eye," symbols of sight and creation, immediately conjure references to a creative God (in pretty much all cases with Blake, "God" refers to the Christian God). If this is so, then questioning whether God could do anything is a direct attack on the omnipotence of such a God.
What kind of poem is the Tyger?
“The Tyger” is a short poem of very regular form and meter, like a children's rhyme in shape (if certainly not in content and implication). It is six quatrains, four-line stanzas rhymed AABB, so that they are each made up of two rhyming couplets.
