I managed to get an A for this; How is a mystery because I had a word limit of a thousand which I went over and personally I thought it was so crap I had to vomit when I read it back over. However, I have so many other essays to turn over before the week is out it would have to do:
Amir commits terrible sins against his friend and half-brother, Hassan. The story of what he does and how he seeks and finds atonement is a lesson for everyone who wants to do find a way to be good again. The Resilience of the Human Spirit The theme of the resilience of the human spirit is also an important idea.
Even though Amir has committed these sins, the inner strength that he had all along, but thought was somehow missing from his character, breaks though to allow him to find Sohrab and free him from the clutches of Assef. In this same way, when Sohrab falls into a great inner depression and tries to commit suicide, the spirit within him emerges and he finds his way to happiness again.
It is true as seen in this novel that there are essentially evil individuals who are impossible to redeem and that the evil they do affects all people around them. Assef is such a character. He enjoys hurting others physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
If there is a Hell, he is bound for it. However, there is also the evil found in all of us, no matter how good we are most of the time, which allows us to do bad things to those we love the most. The reasons may vary for why we commit such sins, but in the end, it is all about needing some sort of power in our lives.
Fortunately, this evil is redeemable when we are ready to atone and right the wrongs we have committed. Amir is such a man.
He is essentially good, but the evil he does as a child follows him into his adulthood and he must find a way to expiate those sins for his own sake and also for the sake of Sohrab. The Fragile Relationship Between Fathers and Sons Another theme that is emphasized throughout is that of the fragile relationship between fathers and sons.
Amir spends his entire life trying to be the son who will not disappoint his father and making up for the death of his mother who died while giving birth to him. Many of the sins he commits are in the hopes that his father will believe in him, embrace him, and tell him how proud of him he is.
It is only when Amir grows up, watches how valiantly his father faces his own death, and then returns to Afghanistan to right the wrongs he had committed that he realizes that his father had always loved him and was proud of him. It is unfortunate that men find it difficult to show their love to their sons for fear of somehow being less of a man.
Amir would have loved to have had such a relationship all of his life and we who watch him struggle to find it identify with his need for parental approval. Loyalty and Devotion Another theme would be loyalty and devotion.
This is especially evident in the relationship between Amir and Hassan. Nonetheless, even though Hassan is the victim of discrimination and class structure, he is completely devoted and loyal to Amir, both as his servant and as his friend.
It takes Amir many years to atone for how terribly he treated the loyalty and love that Hassan always offered no matter what the circumstances. The Discrimination, Bigotry, and Class Structure of Afghan Society A final theme involves discrimination, bigotry, and class structure in Afghan society.
Amir and his father are Pashtuns, the majority, who believes they are a better class than the Hazara and who follow the Sunni sect of Islam. Because of this bigotry and basic class structure, it is very difficult for anyone to marry into another class and the Hazara are often victims of physical, emotional and psychological abuse at the hands of Pashtuns.
Finally, it is a triumphant commentary on the human spirit.The novel The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini, is written from the perspective of an adult, Amir, reflecting on his childhood, growing up in Afghanistan.
From the outset of the novel the reader feels that Amir is somehow weighed down by his past.
