“Redemption in The Kite Runner There comes a time in every man’s life when he makes a decision that is going to cause him to seek for redemption for the rest of his days. It is not until he reaches that point of redemption that he can rest peacefully with the mistakes he has made. Redemption is one of the most important themes we see in The Kite Runner through Amir and Baba. Their reasons for seeking redemption come from things that they did to Hassan. Amir’s incident was allowing Hassan to be brutally raped by Assef. The mistake Baba made was having an affair with Sanaubar and being the father of Hassan. Redemption can be sought for and never reached such as Baba’s case or it can take numerous years and a brutal beating such as Amir’s case. In Baba’s life, he runs into a few conflicts with trying to seek redemption. The first is the conflict that arises between Hassan and Amir. The question arises from Amir to Baba about getting new servants. Baba responded to Amir by telling him, “You bring me to shame. And Hassan … Hassan’s not going anywhere, do you understand?” (90).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
