The narrator wished for a perfect brother that his would be able to do things with but when he wasn’t given that it caused him to do things that no brother should ever do or think about doing to his younger brother.

The narrator was wishing for a brother that he would be able to do things with and have fun with, but when the narrator was
Seamus Heaney mentions his father in three different poems: ‘Digging,’ ‘Follower,’ and ‘Mid-Term Break.’ In the three poems, Heaney’s portrayal of his father, as well as his voice, changes into two different images. One of it portrays his father as a leader and role model, while the other portrays him as a frail and fragile being from Heaney’s broken fantasy. In the first part of his poems, ‘Digging’ and ‘Follower,’ Heaney portrays his father as godly, fully admiring his father. He uses overstatements and hyperbole, such as ‘An expert’ and ‘more than any other man,’ to emphasise his respect and admiration for his father’s work. His use of imagery, rhyme scheme, and cultural background also intensifies his dream to become a man like his

Daru 's clandestine attraction for Mumtaz and his envy for Ozi cloaked under morally uptight condescension thrust him into the belly of Pakistan 's corrupt judicial system.From being a banker to a drug peddler to a petty criminal, Dara smokes through to the inevitable end. The novel while disguised as an allegory for the historical trial of the Mughal prince Dara Shikon by his brother Aurangzeb none the less presents a self portrait of Mohsin Hamid. The novel reveal his privileged upbringing and his bourgeoisie status. Mohsin Hamid did his higher education from the United states of America.

Fight club. This is a great example of the working class getting back at the upper class, exposing the upper class to obscene pictures without their knowledge. I see it as a way for Tyler to reverse the roles of society, to become the oppressor and the upper class the oppressed. The second example: “Our goal is the big red bags of liposuctioned fat we’ll haul back to Paper Street and render and mix with lye and rosemary and sell back to the very people who paid to have it sucked out. At twenty bucks a bar, these are the only folks who can afford it.” (Palahniuk, C. 1996).
Many problems in Amir’s life are unwittingly caused by Hassan. For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America. With a few exceptions, people simultaneously embody evil and good in their life; Hosseini demonstrates this with Amir, who is convinced that he himself is evil, and spends most of the book struggling to redeem himself so he can finally realize he is not wicked after all.
