Hi, I've been given the following question- what do we learn about the relationship between Amir and Hassan on chapter 6? I'm really confused as to how I could tackle this I kind of know what I want to say but It's not enough, is there anyone who has read this that could help with examples? I am so desperate I've been struggling with this for over a week. ANY help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks for reading

You could look at the relationship between Amir and Hassan in terms of their roles in the build up to the kite tournament- Amir as the 'kite fighter' and Hassan as the 'Kite Runner'. As Hassan is the eponymous hero of the title, it suggests that this concept of dedication, etc., is really relevant, especially given their reversed roles at the end of the novel. However, this might be more relevant in the next chapter.
Also, the scene in which Amir tests Hassan's loyalty- and Hassan in turn tests Amir's morality- shows the nuances of their relationship. It's probably one of the most important scenes in the novel, and a lot of analysis can go into it, especially if you bring in contextual infortmation about Pashtun and Hazara, Sunni and Shi'a, servant and master.
