At the moment all Amir can think about is getting the kite to show Baba and seeing him proud, he wants to help but is young and conflicted. Even though he won and Hassan returns with the kite, all Amir can feel is guilt as the days go by after. He uses his fathers one rule about sin against Hassan, "Now, no matter what the mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft.
These statements are also applied in The Kite Runner which features upon Baba is about how he the ruler of just about anything, has done wrong. He was a husband to the mother of Amir, who died while having her child, but he was also the father of another child but had to keep him as a servant not as a son. For a male to have children from two different women was majorly frowned upon. As stated before he was a ruler to many and known of by even more. But he gave up all of it to be true to himself to give his family the truth on page’s#17/18 Baba stated “There is only one sin, only one.
I think if he explained to grew like, “this bag has a wind so we can reach home soon”. His crew might trust him and soon they’ll reach their homeland Ithaca. But he omitted the truth and when he falls to sleep, his crew decided to open the bag so I think that was the second time Odysseus did wrong things. That hides something in his crew. Finally, when he returned his homeland Ithaca and disguised as a beggar because he can fight alone, so he has to know which people’s hearts still loyal to him.
Hassan is a Hazara which is a type of faith in which a young bully, named Assef, does not favor very much. Assef claims that Hassan is “a lucky Hazara..” and that “it’s only going to cost [Hassan] that blue kite, a fair deal..” (Khaled Hosseini 60). If Hassan simply handed over the kite in which Amir had won during the kite-fighting tournament than he would be able to be free. The bullies call Hassan “a lucky Hazara”, insulting him by treating him as if he’s not a real person, with a name. Hassan has such a strong character that he is aware that giving up this kite is not an option.
This is because Amir is the main reason Hassan got raped and if he had got someone’s help to rescue him, then Hassan would have never been assaulted in the first place. However, Amir’s selfish ambition of proving his worth to this dad resisted his urge to try to help Hassan as he wants to able to take the kite home safely. Moreover, Amir presumes that his betrayal towards Hassan is like a curse in his life since he will not be able to forgive himself for this deception or free himself from the guilt that has taken over his
If this young gentleman have done offence, I take the fault on me. If you offend him, I for him defy you.” (Act 3, Scene 4, Line 280). In this line Antonio is telling Sir Andrew to put his sword away and if “Sebastian” has done anything to offend that Antonio will take the blame for it and will fight him instead. This was a very brave and courageous act and Antonio did it with no hesitation as soon as he saw his friend in need he stepped in to help. He didn’t have to take the blame for it and he didn’t even know what he was taking the blame for therefore, this is just another example of how he puts others first.
Thesis: In the novel The Kite Runner, the author explores the conflict between redemption and guilt, showing that people who are burdened with guilt will only feel free if they make up for their actions. The Kite Runner Ever since an event that occurred when he was twelve, Amir has been feeling guilty and remorseful. Although decades had passed since the incident, Amir still wishes for a chance to redeem himself. His entire life is impacted by that one situation where Hassan is raped and he just watches. What adds to Amir’s guilt is Hassan’s kindness and his refusal to hurt anyone, meaning Hassan was undeserving of the injustice he experienced.
There is no doubt that the function is profound. Second one is about kite flying and kite fighting, the most important symbols in the novel. Kites, the key word in this novel, symbolize the thematic topics and interaction between betrayal and redemption. I think maybe I can give priority to the kite at the same time, and follow it described in the novel to analyze the destiny and changes of
Amir is the kite fighter, and Hassan is the kite runner (the one who catches the defeated kite after it falls from the sky), famed for his ability to know where the kite will fall without even looking. When Amir becomes tournament champion for the very first time, and earns his father’s respect he has longed for, Hasan get bullied and raped by Assef, who bullied Amir because of his friendship with Hassan. Having witnessed his friend being raped and yet too afraid to help him or act, Amir is incapable of facing Hassan. Thus, he fakes an accusation of Ali which leads to him being dismissed from the house by Baba, in attempt to get rid of the guilt he feels towards his
They say a kite can give you wings, but for me, it gave bars. They are supposed to guide the way and let you soar. When I flew that kite, it showed me no such thing. All I got from it was trouble, and regret. One thing I learned, that I shouldn’t let others influence what I do or say, because in the end it is me, inside making decisions for myself.
For Amir the blue kite is an object that he finds himself needing to acquire under any circumstances, even if that meant abusing the loyalty and respect that Hassan held for him. For the entirety of Amir’s childhood, he had been neglected of Baba’s affection and approval, and this lead him to believe that the blue kite was the only way for him to win his father’s heart. This desire of Amir to acquire Baba’s love, ultimately lead him to disappointment Hassan, and not intervene in his rape. Consequently, Baba is responsible for Amir’s actions that are taken out of jealousy and cowardice. These feelings had falsely convinced Amir that Hassan would have to be his sacrifice, and be the one to atone his suffering, so he can live
The fire was not consumed, when his brothers plotted to destroy him, the fire was not consumed, because as long as we maintain the flame, the enemy can mean it for evil, but God Yahweh, he who dwelt in the bush…. Mean it for good! Patricia: My son prepared for this day, like his father prepared for his sport games, I am surprised he put that must thought into his presentation. My son…..went from being a boy in the hood, to a man in the world. Thank you father God for reclaiming your gift back to yourself.
Whenever the attack first started Amir was there watching. He could have ran away, and at least gotten help. He also could have just jumped in and taken Hassan’s place. When Amir and Hassan are competing in the kite flying competition Hassan says this as he is going get the kite they cut down,“For you a thousand times over.”(Hosseini 67) This quote is very powerful because it
If Amir did end up helping Hassan, then he would have been thanked by everyone, but instead Amir is faced with the sight of that scene forever. Amir’s passion was to be loved and applauded by Baba, but his moral obligation was to help his best friend. Turning away from his best friend just exemplified how he was scared and intimidated and that is the worst way to act going through life. The main lesson to take out of Hosseini’s quote is to make the decision that will be the most beneficial to the future because just by one wrong decision, life can go a whole different
This quote demonstrates how Scout originally thinks bravery is a man behind a gun, but can acknowledge that her father being kind to even the most cruel characters, is an act of bravery as well. Atticus is courageous in making the decision to treat everyone as equals, because although he knows he and his children will be unaccepted by Maycomb 's society, he still stands up for what he believes in. Transition bob ewell"I destroyed his last shred of credibility at that trial, if he had any to begin with. The man had to have some kind of comeback, his kind always does. So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I 'll gladly take."
