The Kite Runner Finl Project
Transcript of The Kite Runner Finl Project
"He had the blue kite in his hands; that was the first thing I saw. And I can't lie now and say my eyes didn't scan it for any rips. His chapan had mud smudges down the front and his shirt was ripped just below the collar. He stopped. Swayed on his feet like he was going to collapse. Then he steadied himself. Handed me the kite." Amir #63
Hassan got raped because he was trying to help Amir win the kite tournament and run the last kite down. He promised Amir he would run the last kite down for him and he did it. Everything he did showed friendship and loyalty.
Hassan protested again. So they took him to the street--""No," I breathed."--and order him to kneel--""No. God, no.""--and shot him in the back of the head.""--Farzana came screaming and attacked them--""No.""--shot her too. Self-defense, they claimed later--" (Amir, 128)
Hassan got executed by the Taliban because he refused to give up Baba's house. he promised himself not to give it up no matter what. Hassan is a person that never changes his mind, once he promised something it has to get done.
"I turned and came face to face with Hassan's slingshot. Hassan had pulled the wide elastic band all the way back. In the cup was a rock the size of a walnut. Hassan held the slingshot pointed directly at Assef's face. His hand trembled with the strain of the pulled elastic band and beads of sweat had erupted on his brow." Amir #25
Hassan always stood up for what ever happened to Amir. he fights back for him when he is in trouble. This showed us from the beginning that Hassan is a very loyal person.
Hassan taught his son "Sohrab" how to read and write, so he could have a better life. Ali didn't really do anything that changed or helped Hassan's life. He wanted his son to be strong and educated because knowledge is strength. That makes him a very good father.
Imagery means to use figurative language to represent objects, actions and ideas in such a way that it appeals to our physical senses.
"The signs of our elopement were subtle: My parents' wedding picture was gone, as was the grainy photograph of my grandfather and King Nader Shah standing over the dead deer. A few items of clothing were missing from the closets. The leather-bound notebook Rahim Khan had given me five years earlier was gone."( Amir, 112). It makes the story better by capturing certain details to not only events that had happened but also descriptions of characters, readers are able to picture the story better.
"I ran. A grown man running with a swarm of screaming children. But I didn't care. I ran with the wind blowing in my face, and a smile as wide as the Valley of Panjsher on my lips. I ran."(Amir, 371)
After picturing this heart racing mini kite tournament in the park Amir also shows his love and appreciation for Sohrab by running the last kite for him just as Hassan had done for him.
"The city was bursting with sounds;the shouts of vendors rang in my ears mingled with the blare of Hindi music; the sputting of rickshaws, and the jingling bells of horse-drawn carts. Rich scents, both pleasent and not so pleasent, drifted to me through the passenger window, the spicy aroma of pakora and the nihari Baba had loved so much blended with the sting of diesel fumes, the stench of rot, garbage, and feces." (Amir, 196)
The image that Amir sees when he arrives in Peshawar. It really desribes what the city looks like and smells like. He gives a good desribetion of what he sees when he arrives. He describes everything exactly the way it is.
There are approximately 2.7 million Hazaras in Afghanistan. They were once the largest Afghan ethnic group constituting nearly 67% of the total population of the state before the 19th century. More than half were massacred in 1893 when their autonomy was lost as a result of political action. Today they constitute approximately 9% of the Afghan population. The origin of Hazara are much debated, the word Hazara means "thousand" in Persian but given the Hazaras features, current theory supports their decent from Mongol soldiers left behind by Genghis Kahn in the 13th century.
