Not an American poem

The poem was written in the UK. T S Eliot was a British citizen who was
born in the US but produced his work in the UK where he lived for most of
his life.

Journey of the Magi / Eliot

What I take from the sense of sadness and resignation in the narrator is
that he had this experience. He made this difficult journey. He was
searching for something, but when he found it, he could not bring himself
to fully accept the implications. This reminds me of the ending of that
Rilke poem "You must change your life". The narrator is unwilling to do
this, and because of this he cannot enjoy the reality or the fruits of a
true rebirth in Christ. He remains in the liminal zone of betwixt and
between, neither here nor there. Physical death would be a relief to him
because he can no longer enjoy the old but neither can he truly embrace the
new. To do so he would have to sacrifice the comforts of the old and the
familiar and leap boldly into the new, into the arms of Christ.

throught my reading to this wonderful poem i concluded to the fact that it
goes beyond two important phases that is the first one is a physical
journey where the 1st stanza is describing its hardship while the rest of
the poem is emphasizing the spiritual journey that appears more difficult
than the 1st one..
