Has anyone read this poem in reverse order, starting with the last line and
proceeding back to the first? It seems to flow together just as easily
backwards as forwards. I thought this was definitely a unique way to write
a poem, and it shows another element to the “journey” Eliot describes.

this poem could be analysed as the endurance of christains give them
success atlast.

It is one of my favourites. I even have a personal way of experiencing it:
to me, it is about our sharp moments of growth, about our learning new
things and new facts and the way they "disturb" our peace. They may be bad,
they may be good, or they may be just disturbing, and it takes a long time
for us to adapt to the new world this specific truth brought us to, that
sometimes we fear its existence.

P.s. I was a bit insulted by the "Choose your Country" not including
Albania. There are people reading Eliot in this side of the world too.

its a poemin which eliot dramatises the journey to purgation .the magi is
wristling his old despensation through his runing up against the
temptations of life this life is full of material obstacles.of course the
salvation is realised through life in death

this interesting poem by t.s eliot is i think a well painted image on the
reality and inner void within which the modern soul is imbeded.

this poem is showing the journey that all must go through to reach Jesus
and heaven. Eliot was giving us his look on the journey; he was showing
how important the journey is, how important salvation is.

i think in this poem we have a disciption of physical journey.kings looking
for a lost religion,and the things they had to go through to witness that
miraculus birth
