Afghanistan was a war zone but the author of the book, Khaled Hosseini showed to his readers that the country is not just a place of chaos and devastation. It is also a place of friendship, love, courage and joy as he chose it to become the setting of his prominent novel, “The Kite Runner”. Hosseini 's written work finds an awesome harmony between being concise but then capable, and is the story itself splendidly built, as well as investigates the very specialty of creative writing. The most fascinating thing about the novel is its feeling of destiny and equity, of good overcoming bad at last, regardless of all chances. Hosseine opened the eyes of the Western people about the personal struggle of the Afghan people during the war that devastated not only the country’s economy but the very soul of its people.
I ran it fairly. This is his kite” (page number). Assef and his cronies had Hassan cornered, but instead of giving them what they wanted, Hassan continued to be a great friend to Amir and to fight for fairness. Hassan’s rape also marked a changing point in Amir’s story. Amir continually blames himself for not stepping up and stopping Assef and for everything that happens to Hassan thereafter.
This displays how Hassan is in so much pain, that he was about to collapse on the ground. But, his loyalty to Amir made him realize that this is Amir’s moment. Hassan is Amir’s sacrifice to win Baba. When Amir saw Hassan reaction, this made dislike Hassan more, since he showed his devotion for Amir. This guilty, continues to be a struggle for Amir, through the rest of his
Baba and Amir's foil is shown throughout the novel, but you can already identify many differences at the beginning of the book when they lived in Kabul. Although, they also do have a few similarities. They are similar because they are father and son and share similar characterises. Baba and Amir both grew up wealthy as they are Pashtuns. Amir and Baba both hold hard secrets and live their life filled with guilt.
As he runs away to catch it, he yells “For you a thousand times over,”(371). Amir shows he is loyal through these things, and we know this because of how he changed and how he shows his loyalties different. In conclusion, the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini shows you if you want to be good, you should be loyal to people you are close to. After reading this, my personal opinion is that this shows loyalty is black and white because of how Amir changed and became loyal to people he cares about. Do you think loyalty is black and white, or
He continued to learn, which eventually lead to his demise. He was exiled from the society for an invention he created alone, yet again another transgression broken. Therefore the Transgression of the Unspeakable Word has great significance in the story, due to the fact that Equality is an individual and the author uses this transgression to limit individuality. Martyrdom also plays an important role in the work Anthem. Martyrdom is the act of suffering greatly for a religion, or cause.
Hassan’s ability to suffer without becoming bitter frustrated Amir greatly, often making him feel guilty of his actions. The substantial thing about Hassan was that he remained a truly good and genuine person, even though he had his fair share of hard times. Even years later, after being driven out of the house by Amir and growing up to live his own life, Hassan never thought of holding a grudge against Amir, making him truly admirable. Hassan married a woman named Farzana and they conceived a child together. Hassan named his son ‘Sohrab”, after Amir’s and his favourite book when they were little, highlighting that Amir remained very important to him.
He is illiterate; nevertheless he is a cleaver kid, extremely alert and knows what is going on. Every morning when Amir wakes up, Hassan has already prepared his breakfast and organised his clothes for the day. Amir often reads books to Hassan as he cannot read or write himself, and very much enjoys this. He loves the stories that Amir reads him but the best story Amir had ever read to Hassan was a fictional tale Amir made up on the spot. In the novel, there is a section where Hassan’s bravery is shown when he stands up to a bunch of bullies to protect Amir and himself.
Courage is an important theme throughout this story especially within the family values in Kabul. Baba had always believed that Hassan was very courageous and stood up for himself, but Amir was warned on multiple occasions that “a boy who won’t stand up for himself becomes a man who can’t stand up to anything” (chapter 3). Amir proved this on his own when he ran away from problematic situations, for example when Hassan was raped by Assef. Whenever there was danger around when Hassan and Amir were together, Hassan always stepped up and fought for his friend. The concept of friendship shifts through Amir and Hassan’s understanding of their relationship.
In the Minister’s Black Veil, the black veil has a great significance to the story. The black veil symbolizes the secret sin in society. The sins of humanity are the greatest sin which society hides and ignores. People do not take account of the bad deeds that are going on every single day. This Parable does an outstanding job of doing that because Mr. Hooper goes on with his day normally, but by having that veil on his face it exemplifies that sin is occurring.
