Autheres: Alll of thease autheres have experienced completely opposite things different time peoids different situations and completely different novals. Yet each one of thease autheres shows a noval with charters wanting to turn there back on the past and forget what has happened
Thesis: In all three novels, The Joy Luck Club, Looking for Alaska, and The Kite Runner. The author gives one or more charters in the novel a past that they wish not to remember or relive and so they shove it away as a way to deal with it.
P 1: The Joy Luck Club
Ts: In the Joy Luck Club the charter An-mei Hsu chooses and is semi forced to forget her past.
Quot 1: “When I was a young girl in Chine, my grandmother told me my mother was a ghost”(42). This is her grandmother alsmot telling her to forget her mothere
Quot 2: “I knew Popo wanted me to forget my mothere on purpose, and this is how I came to rember nothing of her”(42).
Ex 1: She movies to Amarica and escapes her past and all the hurt that waent with it.
EX 2:When Bing died she forgot her faith. The continuation of her insteld forgetting follows her all the way to Amarica and how she deals with the hurt.
Clincher: An-Hsu turns her back to a world that hurt her and coause her pain with ther first instanced of forced forgetting to her als inconter off it with the losose of her sone An- Hsue uses forgetting to cop with her hurt
TS: Just like in the Joy Luck Clup Amir in The Kite Runner uses forgetting as a way to cop with the pain and gilt her felt as a child leacing Hamer in the allie.
Quot 1: “I bit at my fist. Shut my eyes”(72). This is his first isntes of forgetign the act of turning his back so he dose not have to rember.

Ex 2: even though he had Family in Pakistna he never wnt bback. He wanted to stay as far away to forget everthing and anything that hpapend in Pakistan.

CL;incher. In The Kiter Runner Amir tied to find a way to forget his past and the pain and gult her felt with it by never speking it and closeoing heis eyes to it leartly and in a figurative maner.
TS: Like Amir Alask In Looking for Alaska tried to forget what she ahd done and what she saw as her falt.
Quot 1: “ Yeah I wasa alittle kid little kidas can diel 911”(118). This shows how alska wish to forget but she enver truly has the abilty to forget. She holds a grude agenst her se;f.
Quot2:””Why didn’t you ever tell me?”…. “It never came up”(120). This shows aslaks trying to forget the pain the hurt by not talking just like Amir if it wants talked aobut it didn’t happe.
Ex: Alaska never spoke aobut the sinsident untily she was very very drunk she wanted to forget the pain and guilt vbut she never could escap iot.
Ex: Alask drawned her pain in the drinking she did it was a nother method to her of tring to forget.
Tone: Serching for ansers
Clincher: In Looking for Alaska tryes to make it so she dosnt have to rember what hpapend to her mom what she feals she didi to her mom. Alaska like Amire hold a s burdona burodn of guilt that she wish to forget.
THieses: In all three novels, The Joy Luck Club, Looking for Alaska, and The Kite Runner. The author gives one or more charters in the novel a past that they wish not to remember or relive and so they shove it away as a way to deal with it.
Puirpose: Its human anateure for people to want to forget what hurts in all three of thease novals the charter is looking for some way to make it not hurt, but in all thre novals the authere wether it be Tan, Hossien or even Green protrats someone who is looking to forget butalways sems to rember. The authere is almost tells the readerthat the past is to important to forget and tyou never can forget it.
ASudince. In all three of thiease nocal the authere is speking to the purson who want tos to frget wether it be an imigraten, a bad fribned, or even jsuta teenage girl.
KLast seentince: In all the noval: The Joy Luck Club, The Kite Runner, or Looking for Alaska the auther portras charter who wish to forget the past that amdie thenm and the things that shppeappedn them. But as each noval shows the past has a way of finding them. All three books show the past makes the charters. The charictors don’t make that past.
