THE ROAD TO OXIANA
His arrival at his destination, the legendary tower of Qabus, is not nearly as amazing as the record of his adventures. Byron’s book is not so much a travel narrative as an amalgamation of newspaper clippings, public signs and notices, official forms, letters, diary entries, essays on politics, lyric passages, historical and archaeological dissertations, and at least twenty comic dialogs complete with stage directions.
