Discuss the significance of this tree.
Relevance of the pomegranate tree
It is important to discuss the significance of the pomegranate tree because it bears importance from the beginning to the end of the novel. Early on it is made clear that the pomegranate tree is Amir and Hassan's favorite playing spot, it is a place where the boys grow close. Later on, the tree is mentioned once again in the letter Hassan writes to Amir.
Significance of the pomegranate tree
The tree symbolizes Amir and Hassan's friendship. While they are kids and they're relationship is strong, the tree bears fruit. Years later when Hassan sends the letter, the tree still exists but it no longer bears fruit. In conclusion, the pomegranate tree serves as a metaphor for the unifying force between Amir and Hassan and how it evolves as the years pass.
