*T.S. Eliot’s Christmas Stories: ‘Journey of the Magi’ and ‘A Song for
Simeon’ *
Cornelia Cook
*New Blackfriars *
Vol. 81, No. 958 (December 2000), pp. 516-527

“‘Journey of the Magi’ and ‘A Song for Simeon’ use poetic dramatisation to
retell a bible story. Re-tellings reflect the experiences of other times
and places than the initial story. Re-tellings reach out to a wider
audience — in place, in time; they both restate and extend the implications
of the initial story.”
