"At length upon the lone Chorasmian shore He paused--"
In an instance, In Chorasmia, at the huge site of Kalaly Gyr, archaeologists have excavated a palace which probably belonged to a Persian or to a Chorasmian influenced by Iranian culture.
It is notable how "the lone Chorasmian shore," which the first-time reader of the poem no doubt just jots down as a bit of obscure detail, becomes one of the poem's aural signposts to the veteran reader.
Later, on reading Colin Thubron's account of his journey through parts of Central Asia after the collapse of the Soviet Union I could only be thankful that the country had been spared an experience which gave new meaning to the words 'Chorasmian Waste'.
