What are the literary devices found in "Journey of the Magi" by T. S. Eliot?
One literary device you might find in "Journey of the Magi" is allegory. At first, it seems like T. S. Eliot is portraying biblical times. Yet you could argue Eliot uses the Magi to address the alienation and apathy of modernity. Eliot's description of the towns and cities link to his other poems' disquieting depictions of the twentieth century. Another literary device is juxtaposition. Eliot's meditation on "Birth" and "Death" suggests that they're not so dissimilar.
