In this research, colonialism in the novels The Kite Runner written by Khaled Hosseini and Homeless by Reza Amirkhani was analyzed comparativelyThese two novels, which are formed in Eastern culture, have a deep-seated relationship which is the continuation life of the first persons, Amir and Armia, in the west (America). Imigration to this country is a forced one for both of them, during which the author discusses colonialism and its manifestations. The cultural correlation of these works and their formation in a parallel manner have given some similar elements which was why they were selected to be studied comparatively. In this article, which was done in a descriptive-analytical approach, the hero's migration from the homeland, which is associated with a kind of alienation, and the role of colonialism in creating this alienation were discussed. The purpose of this research is to present a new understanding of the concepts and origin of the formation of these novels comparatively. The main issues which were found in these works were: character journey from east to west, Homeland (the depth of the main character in the homeland), the presence of the helping element of the hero (killed by colonialism), Nostalgia, culture (purity of character), The double face of religion, alienation and negation of capitalism.
