The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini shows the significant effect on relationships between sons and their father figures. The two main father-son relationships in the novel are between Amir, Hassan, and their fathers. Many of the significant events that shape the novel, such as the incident in the alley, as well as the personality and nature of Amir and Hassan, revolve around the influence of their father figures. Amir had been seeking for Baba’s affection from the moment he was born. In fact, his first word was Baba, which indicates how much Amir had longed for Baba’s love and attention.
For the reason that Hassan was raped, Amir felt guilty and began regretting his actions. Every time Amir would do something mean towards Hassan, he felt guilty after the action. “‘Let’s see. ‘Imbecile.’ It means smart, intelligent. I’ll use it in a sentence for you.
Hit me!” (92). Amir yells at Hassan to throw a pomegranate at him since he had hurt him before. Amir wants Hassan to “get even” with him because it will make him feel like being a witness to his assault was not as bad and relieve the guilt within him. After Amir shouts at Hassan, Hassan takes a piece of fruit and smashes it in his own face. He then replies, “There...Do you feel better?” (93).
So does Hassan. Hassan expresses his loyalty to Amir through many things, especially the kite. The first word Hassan uttered was “Amir”, which present that Hassan was destined to be loyal to Amir from birth. In the following days, Hassan constantly make contribution to and consider for Amir. When Amir cut off the last kite in the kite fighting competition, Hassan run to chase the kite and say to Amir, “For you, a thousand times ever.”, which moves a lot of people.
