In "The Kite Runner", what is the significance of the scar that Amir develops...
1 Answer | add yours
A scar in literature, much like life, is an indication of a past injury. Amir spends his life knowing he must, one day, atone for his past sin against Hassan. The scar is a constant reminder to Amir of injustice and weakness; his external scar becomes a metaphor for his internal hurt.
