I should be glad of another death

January 6 is Epiphany, a Christian feast day celebrating the eternal Word Made Flesh; Jesus Christ, the Son of God made man. The magi’s visit is also traditionally observed on Epiphany. So in observation of this feast day, enjoy this reading of T.S. Eliot’s 1927 poem “Journey of the Magi,” read by the poet himself (this post’s title comes from the final line of the poem). Video is below (with annoying images), or you can listen and read along here.
