Hassan's Loyalty In 'The Kite Runner'

192 Words1 Page
I believe that Hassan has a lot more power compared to the other characters. The source of Hassan’s power is his loyalty. Hassan’s loyalty gives him power because it gives him the courage to stand up for other people and sacrifice important things in his life, even in an arduous plight. Although many people may think this makes him weak, I think it gives him a sense of immunity against morose people. Hassan is the kind of person that deals with a situation in a pragmatic manner, whereas Amir tends to approach his responsibilities in a furtive manner. Hassan’s loyalty not only empowers himself, but it also affects others. I think the source of Amir’s power is Hassan’s loyalty because that is what made him feel guilty for betraying him.
