Thanks i will give you guys full stars. thanks...Guilt is possibly the most difficult emotion in one's life that can be disabling to the human spirit. However, sometimes guilt can be the catalyst for moral and spiritual development. In both novels, the kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and Fifth Business by Roberston Davies major characters Amir and Dunstable respectively overcome the feeling of guilt. In each text, characters are called upon to do something for another person. Inability or refusal results in a feeling of guilt - which is only managed when the character does something for the person in need. Amir and Dunstable both participate in incidents that cause harm to someone close. The resulting guilt plagues their existences until such a time where through good acts they obtain redemption. Everyone is called upon to do something for others. Amir and Dunstable are like the rest of us; they are called upon to do for others. By way of contrast, Amir's guilt has its source in inaction and constable’s guilt has its source in action. In The Kite Runner Amir’s best friend Hassan gets raped by Assef and his friends in front of Amir but he stands idle, not doing anything. Moreover, he runs away, pretending he hasn’t seen what happened. In Fifth Business, Percy Boyd Staunton throws a snowball with a stone in it at Dunstable Ramsay, who ducks; it hits to the pregnant Mrs. Dempster. Consequently, she gives birth to a premature baby and loses her sanity. In The Kite Runner, Amir could have saved his friend from the dirty hand of Assed and his friends by calling some one else for help or by fighting along with Hassan. But Amir’s passiveness doesn’t let him to take any action and he runs away, thus, he refused to take any action. On the other hand, In Fifth business, Dunstable could not have saved Mrs. Dempster because as soon as he ducks the stone hit Mrs. Dempster, thus, he was unable to do anything. Inability or refusal to follow up on some request, however, results in guilt and the memories in relation to the incidents emerge many times in Amir’s and Dunstable’s life, in some instances leaving them vulnerable. For instance, in The Kite Runner, When the Russian soldier asks for a woman in the bus, Amir’s father (Baba) says to the translator, "Tell him I’ll take a thousand of his bullets before I let this indecency take place." After hearing this Amir feels ashamed that while his father would give his life to save someone, but he did nothing to save his friend…"Sometimes, I too wondered if I was really Baba’s son." Likewise, in Fifth Business, When Mrs. Ramsey tells her husband all the juicy details about Mrs. Dempster; Dunstan listens guiltily through the vents in his bedroom…"I learned all the gynecological and obstetrical details as they were imparted piecemeal to my father; the difference was that he sat comfortably beside the living-room stove, opposite my mother, while I stood barefoot and in my nightshirt beside the stovepipe upstairs, guilt-ridden and sometimes nauseated as I heard things that were new and terrible to my ears. Nonetheless, both novels revolve around the effects and burden of guilt, in Amir case it is more prevalent and natural while in Dunstable’s case it holds a more negative connotation to it. The way out of guilt feelings is to actually do something for the person who was in need of help the first time. Moreover, both characters have to strive to redeem themselves and the time period of strive ness can be divided in to several stages. In fact, they couldn’t get rid of guilt by just doing one simple act; instead, they have to do a lot. In The Kite Runner, Amir’s guilt motivates his feelings of obligation toward Hassan. He performs many actions that demonstrate how much guilt pushes him to redeem himself. For example, Amir goes to Afghanistan in order to save Sohrab, he even puts his life in danger; he wants to rescue Sohrab at any cost because Sohrab is Hassan’s son and he can redeem himself by rescuing Sohrab…"I realized something: I would not leave Afghanistan without finding Sohrab. " Tell me where he is," After rescuing Sohrab, they both fly to Pakistan, over there, Amir humbly asks Sohrab to come with him to America because he knows if Sohrab goes back to Afghanistan, his future will destroyed by the Taliban…"I am so very profoundly sorry. I ask for your bakhshesh, your forgiveness. Can you do that? Can you forgive me? Can you believe me?" I dropped my voice. ‘Will you come with me?’" After that, when Sohrab reaches America he remains unhappy and doesn’t speak for a year. Amir keeps coaxing Sohrab and finally while kite flying Amir shows off some of Hassan’s tricks, and Sohrab begins to interact with Amir again. It can be seen from that above stages that guilt is not an easy emotion for Amir to overcome, therefore, Amir applies great effort to free himself from the clutches of guilt…"I ran.

    I would rephrase your supporting examples to your arguments. The essay becomes weak when it’s filled with plot descriptions, which has rampantly taken over this excerpt. Also, the quotation you used to describe Ramsey’s guilt is slightly winding. I would either choose one that is more concise and to the point or cut out the irrelevant bits.
