The reader can suggest this us Amir feeling guilty and wants Hassan to leave, so that he can stop suffering from what he had done wrong and look into his future. He appears as if he is trying to help Hassan but, reality is that he actually isn’t. On the other hand, it can also be interpreted that Amir is being awfully selfish by constantly craving Baba to only be his, therefore by heartlessly allowing Hassan to leave which is not said but physically shown that he does not want Hassan. It seems as if Hassan was only a phrase in his life that he can just let go in a single go and that he did not mind about Hassan’s leave which lacks his emotions. This leads to him acting more like his father closing the metaphorical doors on Hassan trying to exclude him and to forget him.
Since the day Amir is born, he feels that his father dislikes him. While his mother gave birth, Amir continually felt as though he had to fix the ruining of his father’s life of love with Sofia. After all, they did not have much similarity, leading to a problem; Amir really had nothing to do that could affect Baba since they have nothing similar. Baba was more energetic, confident, and big on taking risks whereas Amir is not. The differences between the father and son are so abundant that Baba emphasizes, “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d not believe he’s my son” (Hossieni 25).

It is Randolph’s fault that Mr. Sansom is paralyzed and he needs Joel’s help, but no one tells him this at first. In the novel, Joel’s father is the perfect embodiment for amour propre, or self love, which is described by Jean Jacques Rousseau. Rousseau states that there is self love and love of self, both which are completely different. Self love is the bad type and love of self is the good type. Self love is perverted and is a state of being in which one expects other people to give up part of their selves for that one person’s desires.
He makes the anticipation of bad news worse than the bad news itself. As Kumalo “arrives” at the point of sorrow, it is a relief because although he still feels crushed to know all that has become of his son is a murderer, he at least stands on solid ground. This is shown when he goes to visit his son before the trial and loses respect for his brother because his brother refuses to try to grieve. He knows that by refusing to do so, his brother is also refusing to heal. Kumalo knows that there is no purpose in extending the journey, because then he would just be extending the pain.
1. The Road is a novel of transforming power and formal risk. Abandoning gruff but profound male camaraderie, McCarthy instead sounds the limits of imaginable love and despair between a diligent father and his timid young son. The morbid journey of a father and his son tends to dominate the action of the narrative but what is it that makes the story more than just a series of disturbing confrontations? What was your response to the journey the father and son endured?
Therefore that has made Stan have trust issues and has he said just blend in. Stan has never really opened up to anyone about his problems and is having trouble communicating. He also has issues with his father. In my opinion I feel Stan thinks his father doesn’t love him like he loves his siblings and even thinks of Stan as a nuisance. The technique that was used in this session was Psychoanalytical orientated and I think that is the best approach to use with Stan.
Baba’s cold attitude as a parent makes Amir unable to love his father and in the process begins to ‘fear him too and hate him a little’. As a result Amir quietly defies his father and decides he will not succumb to his father’s ‘molding; ways. The silent animosity between father and son ends when Amir succeeds a kite-flying contest and Baba finally shows pride in his son, ‘seeing Baba on that roof, proud of me at last’ providing an insight into the joys of their relationship. However by Amir finally undergoing a change of traits and showing the attributes his father feared he lacked, highlights the flaws in their relationship: Is it right that Amir should have to go to extreme lengths to ‘win’ his own fathers affection? Fatherly love shouldn’t be a contest quantified by the slashing of kites, such actions are hardly the foundations for a joyous relationship.
