CLUE: 1793 reports of the killing of Hector Munro by a wild animal in India may have inspired one of this man’s best-known poems
ANSWER: William Blake
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 16 November 2023
The tragic demise of Hector Munro, who was killed by a wild animal in India in 1793, is thought to have possibly influenced William Blake’s renowned poem “The Tyger.” A prominent figure in the Romantic era of English literature and art, Blake’s work is characterized by its depth and often spiritual undertones.
Published in his 1794 collection “Songs of Experience,” “The Tyger” is notable for its striking imagery and the use of rhythmic and repetitive questioning throughout the poem. It delves into the contrasting aspects of a tiger’s nature – its beauty and its ferocity – and relates these to broader themes of creation and ethical ambiguity. The vivid portrayal of the tiger in the poem may mirror the sensational reports of Munro’s encounter with the wild animal.

Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
