By having an affair, Willy not only betrayed Linda but he also betrayed Biff as he lost his trust. The reason why he might betray a lot is because he is afraid of betrayal and so in order to overcome it and not feel like he was ever betrayed, he goes and betrays. As mentioned above, Willy reflects Biffs’ failure in business as a reflection of his own dreams of succeeding although he only succeeded for a short while in his life.
When Amir decided to run away from Assef’s attack on Hassan, it meant that he chose to protect himself rather than help his friend. Amir’s betrayal leads to the key idea of the need for redemption.

By the end of Kite Runner, Amir has freed his conscience from a cycle of lies and is relieved when he finally saves Sohrab, son of Hassan.

Therefore, before getting past the first line of this poem I already disliked the snake. However this is exactly what Lawrence is showing in the poem. Because of my education from society, I assume that an innocent creature is automatically evil. This poem is filled with alliteration. More specifically it is filed with alliteration of the sound “s.” I believe Lawrence did this for a reason.
