A Study on the Narrative Perspective of

The Kite Runner


Kohaled Hosseini is an Afghan-American bestseller writer who was born in the 1960s in Afghanistan where he was born and raised. That was a good time which was not known much by us all. Some scholars say his work whose background is set on that time has opened the first window of the middle east’s culture to the English world even to the global.

The Kite Runner was his maiden work and also the first English novel written by Afghan which makes a huge impact on the world since its publication. All his novels are about friendship, kinship, love and faith. Words in his works, simple and unadorned but honest and sharp, point to readers softest heart and push people to think over themselves. They provoke the shame and regrets from dust-laden memories. The Kite Runner is also the same. The language in The Kite Runner is so fluent but simple even clumsy, but in the terms of plot setting and narrative strategies, it is worthy its reputation as a good initiation novel.

Since The Kite Runner’s Chinese translation edition went on sale and became the bestseller in domestic market, it has attracted a lot of attention of scholars. Most the studies are about its initiation genre. Liu Yueqi said in his paper The Journey of Self-surpassing—Discussion on the Inferiority Feeling and It’s Effect on Amir in The Kite Runner(10-21), Amir has his twisted inferiority feeling, of being not good enough to his own Pushtun people on one hand, on the other hand, he has his superiority for being a childe. That is the most important factor results in his betrayal on Hassan and the core to shape the character Amir’s figure. Besides, there are scholars focus their study on the unscrambling of the image KITE. Running for the kite implies the wishes for the good things. And there are a lot of people who have seen its historical and cultural significance and they analyze the novel from the

cross-culture perspective. There are few but still have some study on the novel’s narrative strategy. In Zhang Jinyan’s An Analysis of Spatial Narrative on The Kite Runner,professor has point out that the novel’s narrative effect was perfectly conforming to Frank’s three aspects of narrative space. In addition, some study are about the narrative point of view, narrative discourse, etc.
