The rest of his essay speaks of the harsh society during the era of the civil rights movement. His father despised white people and barely ever trusted any of them, which was the stem of his paranoia.
The main conflicting scene which acted as a narrative tool to help the story move on was the rape scene in chapter 7. Amir is finally in realisation of the extent of how cowardly he is “I just watched. Paralyzed.” This being significant as it even the rape consisted of only men which emphasises the inequity of gender in Afghanistan and in this novel. However some would disagree - For Amir's mother Sofia - Even though she was a well-known literature professor, her death almost completely eliminates her influence from Amir's life. Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports.

He was a loner and incapable of making friends . He was very detached from his family also. He was delayed in his emotional development because he was lonely. According to Martens, “the major reason for psychopathic violent acts in killers like Jeffrey Dahmer was unbearable loneliness and an intense need for human company.” (Martens(1994-2012) When he took strangers to his home for one night stands, oftentimes random people from gay clubs , he feared so desperately to be left alone again that he murdered the person. Masters explained that, “Dahmer did not enjoy the act of killing and he didn't hate his victims, he just felt it was a necessary evil.” (Master's 1993a, 1993b) Because of his incapability to interact on any level with his victims he felt much more comfortable with their dead bodies for company.
Daniel Tran Instructor: Kelly Murray ENG 102-03 Oct 16th, 2013 Critical Essay #1: Short Fiction Thesis Essay Both “The Storm” by Kate Chopin and “The Chrysanthemums” by John Steinbeck discuss about the love, sex, marriage and the relationship between wife and husband.

Gino, the son of Poppa, is often discriminated against and accused by the society for situations he never devoted, mainly because of his heritage background. Gino is accused for queue jumping at work and is involved in fights at the dance. Racial tension towards the Bianchi family is also seen when the Bianchis next door neighbours who constantly complain about the loud yelling noises from the Bianchis, display racial tensions towards the Bianchis, mainly when they throw a dead fish over the fence into the Bianchis back yard. Clarry himself is guilty of this, as he is not inclined to being a working partner with Gino and doesn’t accept him for who he is, “He-he’s my wife’s brother”. This quote shows he is hesitant and feels embarrassed of being related to Gino a foreigner.
Like in the story as the bully confronts the author with a crowd around him as he plans to beat him and George up for their friendship. Right there you can see that the bully is seeking attention amongst his peers, maybe because that’s something he’s not receiving at his home. As we all know fighting in school usually results in being suspended, but he didn’t seem to care, as any other child would stress or worry about what their parents are going to do, or even give fighting a second thought. Studies show that the lack of attention at home
