Analysis and comments on Brother of Ingots -- Ah Peru -- by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on November 14th, 2005 at 11:25 PM.

In the Bible, Ophir is a land from which comes gold and other precious
things. King Solomon's treasures came at least in part from Ophir. See 1
Kings 9:28 and 1 Kings 10:11.

The mining of precious metals has long been associated with Peru, as has
the exploitation of the land and people by outside mining interests.
