The Theme Of Sohrab's Suicide In 'The Kite Runner'

Satisfactory Essays

Sohrab’s attempt of suicide shows that Amir still does not understand what Sohrab has been going through. In other words, he can’t see things from Sohrab’s perspective. Moreover, what happened to Sohrab shows that Amir has difficulty understanding how young and vulnerable Sohrab is. Every child has something in his or her mind that they are really afraid of, such as monsters or ghost, and Sohrab faced them all when he enslaved or watch her parents got murdered. He was a victim. When Amir broke his promise he gave to Sohrab, it made Sohrab feel insecure. Overall, being abandoned again was too much for Sohrab to take.
