One of Amir’s most cowardly moments was when he let Hassan get raped by Assef and pretended that it never happened. Following this event, he acted negatively towards Hassan and ignored him. Hassan and his father Ali ended up moving out of the house to live on their own after Amir framed Hassan for stealing his money and wristwatch. Hassan never protested or betrayed Amir in any way, showing how loyal he was in their friendship. Amir had been guilty for most of his life but always pushed his feelings aside because he was afraid to face the truth.
Amir couldn’t live with the guilt, so he framed Hassan for stealing objects from the house. Therefore he was responsible for the removal of Hassan and Ali from his family’s home. Years later, after Amir gets married and became succesful as a writer, he still has a hard time dealing with his guilt. As a result, Amir spends the rest of his life trying to find redemption
Schoolwork Helper believes that, "His guilt became so great that he feels he was actually responsible for Hassan's death" (Remorse Leads to Redemption, Schoolwork Helper). Hosseini, in The Kite Runner, states how Amir has learned that burying the past is not possible as it always finds a way to rise up again (page 1, chapter 1). Amir's guilt of his sin, in a same fashion, rose up again, whenever he did anything which provided him with a sense of fulfilment. According to Niraja Saraswat, "Amir's “unatoned sins”, as they are described in the novel's opening chapter, have plagued his conscience and cast an oppressive shadow over his joys and triumphs" (Niraja Saraswat, IJIMS). Li Cunxin, in his blog, writes that at the end of the story, it is learned by the readers that Baba turned out to be a thief who stole the truth from Amir and Hassan.
Blame is everywhere in today’s society, and is seen as immoral. Blame is described when doesn’t take responsibility for anything that they did, so they put the responsibility on someone else. This usually has a negative connotation and used when someone is in trouble for something. In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, blame is everywhere in the play, especially with the death of Romeo and Juliet. In the play, Friar Laurence is foreseen as the reason of Romeo and Juliet’s death, due to the factor that they’re job was making the right choice and they didn’t do it which lead to Romeo and Juliet’s death.
My parents explained no matter how hard his words hurt he should never know it got to me. They told me to make the emotions and reactions that his words or actions conjured up inside of me to go straight into this metaphorical suitcase that I bring and unpack at home to them. Let all the emotions of anger and sadness out where I am safe from more harm. When I applied this lesson to movie night when I was around him, it wasn’t as fun for him to make fun of me. He got so frustrated that his words had no effect on me, he resorted to physical harm instead.
In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man. As the play progresses, Lear’s madness is exposed again and again. One spot in particular that really demonstrated his loosening grip on reality was in scene four of act three when after talking to Poor Tom, he ripped off his clothes (3.4.107-108). He had been talking to Poor Tom after leaving his horrible daughters at Goneril’s home, venturing into a nasty storm, and was completely unphased by the crazy things that he is telling him. This part of the play was a big moment because it captured one of the key moments in Lear’s downward spiral into insanity.
Additionally, before they are engaged, Soraya tells Amir about her tragic backstory, fearing rejection and desertion. Amir does not share the same level of intimacy as the book depicts that he “almost [tells] her how [Amir had] betrayed Hassan, lied, driven him out, and destroyed a forty-year relationship between Baba and Ali. But [Amir] didn 't” (165). Soraya was brave enough to share her secret, but Amir stays silent, letting his guilt build up. Amir thus has to continue keeping his secret from Soraya, stealing her right to the truth.
Khalid Hussaini portrays the image of Hassan as a Christ figure due to his sacrifice in the wining Kite incident with Assef the Sadist bully, because he refused to hand him the winning kite he had fetched for Amir. Although when he knew that he was going to get hurt or be insulted because Hussaini early in the novel had described Assef as a sadist and a sociopath character and the one who lives because the others fear him and his brass knuckles "years later, I learned an English word for the creature Assef was, a word for which a good Farsi equivalent does not exist: sociopath" , he chooses to sacrifice himself anyway " Assef knelt behind Hassan, put his hands on Hassan 's hips and lifted his bare buttocks, he kept one hand on Hassan 's back and undid his own belt buckle with his free hand, he unzipped his jeans, dropped his underwear, he positioned himself behind Hassan, Hassan didn 't struggle, didn 't even whimper, he moved his head slightly, and I caught a glimpse of his face, Saw the resignation in it, it was a look I had seen before. It was the look of
He initially seems concerned, asking about his father’s state and condition, but his distress quickly turns into hostility. Hally adamantly opposes his father’s return, spitefully saying “Order him to get back into bed at once! If he’s going to behave like a child, treat him like one” (33). Hally treats his father like an immature adult incapable of making proper decisions. By telling his mom
• The place where Amir was born in and spent most of his childhood is very unfamiliar to him. Amir also states that he feels like is a traveler. • His explanation sounds at times like science fiction. The city has become a post-apocalyptic nightmare. Clear by the fact that not even trees remain, rendering the landscape oddly desolate • This quote underlines the importance of how Baba was guilty for keeping this huge secret of Hassan being Amir’s half-brother and because of the guilt inside Baba, he took it out on Amir and treated Amir poorly.
