I am writing a critical lens essay on The Kite Runner for English. This is the first one i have ever written and i don't really get it. By the way, we aren't doing a two book essay, just one. We have to chose 3 literary elements and be able to explain them. My quote is "Only a wise man knows this truth; in order to help yourself, you first must help others" I am proving this quote true. So I chose, Resolution, Conflict and I can't decide between setting and climax. I chose Resolution because it is when he redems himself to Hassan by taking in and rescueing his child. I chose conflict because it is Man vs. Himself with Amir, and also with Baba.

What exactly is your question?
Here is a site on the structure of a critical essay.
AND here is a good analysis of the book:

I am sorry if i was not clear =(. I am asking if you think using the climax or the setting, would be better for my essay

For me, the setting was memorable.
