Both friends. Despite Hassan’s courage and braveness that

Both works share exactly one same theme, is that there is
love between the main character and their relatives. In The Kite Runner, at the
beginning of the story Amir and Baba were distant from each other, but after
Amir tries a several of times to earn Baba’s love, he finally gets it. In
Macbeth, the same love is shared between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Both works
are similar as the love of the protagonist makes them harm each other for ones

Both novels showed how seeking for love made the characters
turn away from their loved ones. One example of this is that in The Kite
Runner, Amir and Hassan were best friends at the begging of the novel, and
Hassan was a true friend that defends Amir and protects him from the
antagonist, Assef, that bothers them. Unfortunately, Amir isn’t as loyal of a
friend as Hassan, because he only cares for his own benefits. That was showed
in the book as “I ran because I was a coward. I was afraid of Assef and what he
would do to me. I was afraid of getting hurt. That’s what I told myself as I
turned my back to the alley, to Hassan. That’s what I made myself believe. I
actually aspired to cowardice, because of the alternative, the real reason I
was running, was that Assef was right: Nothing was free in this world. Maybe
Hassan was the price I had to pay, the lamb I had to slay, to win Baba. Was it
a fair price? The answer floated to my conscious mind before I could thwart it:
He was just a Hazara, wasn’t he?” (Hosseini, 140). This quote explains that
Amir witnessed the most horrifying incident imaginable, happening to his
closest friend, Hassan. Hassan was being raped suddenly by the bully Assef and
his friends. Despite Hassan’s courage and braveness that helped Amir in many
tough times, Amir’s cowardice forced him to back off from helping Hassan from
the bullies. Amir wanted to save Hassan, but he was scared of the consequences
that he would be bullied as Hassan so, he ran away as if he did not witness
what was happening. The guilt of Amir causes him to lash out and punish others
around him for his own sins, after which he changes focus, and runs out to get
the kite for his father so he can be proud of him.
