Kite Runner - Relationship Essay
The first 200 words of this essay...
We begin to understand in the novel that Amir is constantly vying for Baba's attention and often feels like and outsider in his father's life, as seen in the following passage;
"He'd close the door, leave me to wonder why it was always grown-ups time with him. I'd sit by the door; knee's drawn to my chest. Sometimes I sat there for an hour, sometimes two, listening to their laughter, their chatter."
Discuss Amir's relationship with Baba.
The 'father-son' relationship between Amir and Baba is not always positive throughout The Kite Runner. At the beginning of the novel, Khaled Hosseini gives an impression to the reader that Amir is looking for the love, respect and approval of Baba he felt he has never had. Whereas Baba feels that his son is not living up to his physical, social, religious and cultural expectations and provides little time for him. However, as the novel unravels the strength of the relationship between these two key characters increases and Amir's constant vying for Baba's attention produces positive results in the relationship. This essay will look at the development and change of the relationship between Amir and Baba and their characterisation
