Surname 2 Secondly, in the novel, we understand that Amir’s mother died at the time of his birth. When Amir learns of this situation, we are introduced to his need for redemption using irony. While fighting the Kite tournament, Amir has always felt the need to redeem his mother’s death. When Amir encounters Hassan being confronted by Assef, he does not interject because he feels that the rape might be justified. Amir says “Maybe Hassan was the Price I had to Pay, the Lamb I had to slay to win Baba. Or was it a fair price?” (Hosseini and Khaled, 82). This means that if Amir gains the kite, then it is enough to win his father’s heart. The irony in this context is that Hassan serves as the catalysts towards the need for Amir’s Redemption.

    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.
