Amir finally understands this at the end. At the beginning Amir couldn’t be happier with a rich dad, nice house and everything he could ever ask for. He was a spoiled kid. When Sohrab came into the story, and Amir finally became a father he started to realize that it was all him now, he was in charge and Amir showed that he really cared for Sohrab. “Do you want me to run that kite for you?” Amir was doing anything for Sohrab, he cared so much for this little boy and he finally realized that he had to live for someone else.
Boor shows this when he writes, “So you figured it would be better if I just hated myself” (265). The only reason his parents told him the truth is Paul confronted them. While they admitted that he had a right to know, they justified their reason for not telling him earlier. Paul may have understood that his parents’ love led to their over protection but he probably distrusted his parents and their ability to tell him the whole truth. Paul’s parents’ choices changed the direction of his life.
His perpetual attempts to gain Baba’s approval throughout his childhood have not seemed to work but he believes that on this particular of kite running victory, the kite would redeem him from killing his mother. For example, “Maybe he’d call me Amir Jan like Rahim Khan did. And maybe, just maybe, I would finally be pardoned for killing my mother.” (30) Similar to Amir, Baba also succeeds in betraying his best friend. Ali is Baba’s Hazara household servant, long time
Making big mistakes in his childhood, Amir has lived his own life with regret and the shame of the past, but tried to avoid it, as he made a commence in the beginning, " I knew it wasn't just Rahim Khan on the line. It was my past of unatoned sins." (1). Recalling of his past, Amir blamed himself as a coward, who had betrayed his childhood friend, Hassan. By taking the excuse what the most important thing to him is Baba's love, Amir consoled himself that Hassan was just a price which he needed to pay for it, because "Nothing was free in this world"
My claim about Avi is that he wants to prove his toughness to him and his friends. Why I believe this is because he says " when I was nine, I worried that I wasn't tough enough". Avi lied to his parents that their scout master was going with them but he betrayed scouts honor. But he said to his scout master after he asked Avi about how he wouldn't lie what about scouts honor, Avi said yes. So by Avi saying yes he was saying that he wouldn't lie but on the other hand he lied so he can prove that he is tough.
What he sees really plays a major role of his psyche, and how he begins to treat others. As the novel gets closer and closer to its end Eliezer’s whole attitude toward his father changes, where in the beginning he wants to stick to his father for safety and comfort, near the end he tries to distance himself from his father thinking that sticking with him is cutting his chance of survive. So he faces the hard reality of wanting to leave his father for dead just so he can live. One point in the novel that Elie says that will stay with him is on how he didn’t try to help his father when he was calling him to help him when he was being beaten by other prisoners. In the novel Night Elie Wiesel shares his persona memories of the Holocaust.
That he risked his life for his country” she is trying to tell Ishmael that many men were effected by the events that happened during the war, there is also a subliminal message that is telling Ishmael that if the war managed to change Kabuo that the same impact has effected Ishmael in a similar way and that his mother wants the previous version of her son back. However Ishamel seems to dismiss this point which shows a lack of respect for his mothers opinion and views on the situation which really should have enlightened him to hand in the evidence
Ka’s father believed that it if he lived a good life the past would not affect him and that he could live at peace but that was not the case. Even though he looked different he himself would always know about all the evil actions he had committed. By changing his identity he wanted to give himself and his family a fresh start but there was a bigger fear in that he would get catch that led his wife to decide never to bring him to Mass with her again. The victims of the Dew Breaker were so affected by what had happened to them that they lived in fear that he would find them and even after they had found him, they could not find it in their hearts to hurt him. The Dew Breaker committed evil crimes but at the end, it was himself that caused him pain because he could never redo the
Franzen also goes on to later say “I don’t like to remember how impatient I was for my father’s breathing to stop, how ready to be free of him I was.” (pg 98) I was surprised to find that he would say something like that about the man that was part of giving him life. I started to think more about a deeper reason for him to have said that and I started to think it was because he really loved his father. Franzen didn’t want to see his father suffer through this horrible disease anymore, so he wanted it to just be over for his father’s own sake. I personally would never want to see a loved one suffer the way Franzen had to watch his father. It would be a hard thing that I don’t know if I ever could go
