Provide a 5 pages analysis while answering the following question: An Account of Hardman’s Argument: Kinkade’s Perspective on Violence. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required.  .Most of her poems are written from a perspective of an individual who has been hurt or has serious emotional issues within her, showing why most people advocate for Violence in most countries where war still exists to date.
An analysis of one of the poems presented by Kinkade shows her belief about war and what ways people who advocate for war reason. Kinkade attempts to justify the various reasons as to why people become violent. The poem titled “A trail of Blood and Silver Dollars” shows why people become violent, with the main subject or representation of Violence being Durand. Durand has been portrayed as a person who is misunderstood by the rest of the world. Kinkade explains Durand’s personality in a metaphor, describing him as a woodland creature walking in this barefoot world. A woodland creature is a creature whose sexuality is not understood, compared to a mythical elf. Viewing Durand as a woodland creature in this barefoot world is a metaphor that tries to justify Violence by illustrating that people with violent thoughts are different from anyone else and need to be understood.
In the poem, Kinkade’s argument revolves around people with emotional issues that drive them to find solace in Violence. The aspect of emotion has been magnified where the character, Durand, kills himself. This poem justifies not only Violence but robbery and suicide. In the poem, the poet shows that Durand’s entire team had a role to play in the robbery from Chuck Lewis to Johnnie Gawthrop – which shows that murder is justifiable since teamwork is a virtue. The title itself depicts robbery as a thrilling, interesting and justifiable means, provided the end means achieved, which was the trail of silver dollars. It is possible to understand Kinkade’s perspective since she provides the logic behind Violence, showing that people in this category of emotional perception view Violence as a way to overcome or avenge all the pain they feel by inflicting this pain on others.
