To reflect on the process of trade between cultures.
The poem considers the trading positions of two cultures and the needs of both sides. It suggests a separation of commodities, regular items under contract being treated differently from those produced as unique and more highly valued artefacts.
Promotes reflection on the respective values of the two sides in the negotiation; of their needs and wants, and their economic backgrounds. Provides a unique account of negotiation and settling on price where different cultures meet.
