Abused What are the themes? There are many themes explored through the book 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khaled Hosseini. We will be discussing what we think the predominant ones are during our presentation. GUILT We are first introduced to the theme of guilt in the first chapters with Miriam:
-Her mother blames her for almost everything, and her father for the rest.
-She feels as if it is her fault that her mother hangs herself.
-She feels like a burden and a waste to her father.
Then we have the guilt brought in her later life:
-How she can’t have children
-How she has failed as mother and a wife.
With Leila we have guilt that is almost identical to some of Miriam’s:
- She feels like she has failed being a good child to her mother.
- She feels like she’ll never amount to the same as her brothers. Reputation Rasheed
