The reason Khaled Hosseini wrote A Thousand Splendid Suns was to tell the abuses that the people of Afghanistan, mostly women, had to endure. Hosseini shows the readers this by using the lives of Mariam and Laila. He made these women to help the reader understand the sadistic part of the world. Hosseini gives us a new lease on life, from the horrible lives these women had to live through. I would have liked to recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns to anyone, but because of such adult themes like abuse and murder I think it shouldn’t be given the faint of heart and to anyone younger than thirteen years old.
She cannot bring herself to tell Lady Jones about Beloved, so she tells her that her mother “doesn’t feel good” (p.292) and she would like to work for food. The community came together to help feed Denver’s family and Denver slowly became a part of the community through thanking people and returning dishes. Denver used the food to keep Sethe alive and Beloved under control, but at home things were deteriorating. Denver decided to go out and find a job with the Bodwins who had been hiring her family for generations. Morrison had Denver confront her past so that she could move towards a better future.
In The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini writes an impactful novel, showing the brutality Afghanistan goes through as power is corrupted in the country. However, Hosseini also explores the theme of authority that family has over others and how dark feelings can rule people’s lives. Power is depicted in three different ways in the novel: the Taliban’s rule over Afghanistan, Baba’s pull on Amir, and the guilt Amir feels over himself. To begin, the most obvious form of absolute power in the novel is the Taliban in Afghanistan. After Russia is defeated, the Taliban emerge as the heroes; although they have dark intentions with the power, following the path of many organizations throughout history.
In her book, “I am Malala”, Malala Yousafzai tells the reader about her time growing up in the Swat valley and the things she experienced as the Taliban entered her valley and began to take away certain freedoms . When looking at such serious topics, it is important to look at both sides of the story, in order to make sure that the actions made by not only Malala, but also the Taliban were rationalized on a scale that we would expect from nearly all people. In simpler terms, it is important to make sure that there is Universalizability within the actions and behaviors of these people. The main focuses will be on how I applied the theories of Utilitarianism , Deontology , and Virtue Ethics to not only support Malala’s actions against the Taliban but, also to argue against her actions and show where she was lacking a complete ethical understanding of her actions. It should also be noted that I do not support the Taliban’s actions and am merely
Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit), an archetypal hero, and Malala Yousafzai, a real-life hero, are alike in many ways, though one is fictional and one is flesh-and-bone. In the first place, these two heroes both had a reason to do what they did, though their justifications were very different. Malala Yousafzai started as a small girl in northwest Pakistan advocating for women’s rights. The Taliban had taken over the country and were impeding girls to go to school and were bombing any remaining (girl’s) schools.

This is because, according to “his” beliefs, I have committed several crimes likes Doublethink, ownership of illegal items, Thoughtcrime and the mere fact of having feelings. Yes “his”: Big Brother’s beliefs. He knows, they know, what I am up to and they’ll catch me, sooner or later. But now, let’s come to the point. As you’re reading this diary, you are probably brainwashed by now by the party (Room 101).
In the first few pages of the book, we are introduced to Malalai of Maiwand, a Pashtun heroine whom Malala was named after. Malalai inspirited Pashtun men to turn the fight around venturing bravely onto the battlefield and dying under fire.Later on in the book , we meet Gul Makai, another Pashtun heroine, who used the Quran to teach her elders that war is bad. In the legend, Gul Makai is able to convince her elders that she can marry her love; a schoolmate and she succeeds . Malala’s story is but one example of this continuous fight. It is a struggle that is beyond Pakistan and the Muslim world.
Marcellus quotes: “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” (1.5.90) From the text “John F.Kennedy’s secret society speech”: “It is the unprecedented nature of this challenge that also gives rise to your second obligation — an obligation which I share. And that is our obligation to inform and alert the American people — to make certain that they possess all the facts that they need, and understand them as well — the perils, the prospects, the purposes of our program and the choices that we face.” (John F.Kennedy, 1961) Significance: (relate your evidence to your claim. How does this argument help to prove your thesis?) Clytemnestra, sought revenge by killing her husband, Agamemnon, because he killed their daughter. Similarly, prince Hamlet sought revenge by trying to murder Claudius for killing his father.
The Taliban were against the Hazaras. I think this statement was placed in the book because the Taliban took charge of the Hazaras and destroyed them just like Amir took charge of Hassan when they were children and eventually destroyed his dignity. I like how the author did this because it is a connection to Amir’s life, and I think that is very clever of the author. (67 words)
