Verbal Irony: Assef gives Hassan a biography about Hitler and says "I hope you enjoy the book, I know you like reading"


Hassan's cleft lip is a symbol of his broken place in society.

Pathetic fallacy can be found on page 94 (depending upon your edition) when Hassan and Ali leave,"Thunder heads rolled in, painted the sky iron grey" - pathetic fallacy
