About the Book

When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller suffered from a severe illness that left her blind and deaf. Soon, she also became mute. Her firm struggle to beat these handicaps, with the support of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan, is one of the extraordinary stories of human courage and commitment. In this classic autobiography, which was first published in 1903, Miss Keller describes the initial 22 years of her life, including the magical moments at the water pump while remembering the connection between "water" and the cold liquid flowing over her hand. She understood that objects have names. Various other aspects of Helen Keller's life are described here in clear, straightforward prose with wonderful imaginative presentations. This extremely moving memoir offers an unforgettable representation of one of the outstanding women of the 20th century.

About Author

Helen Keller

Helen Keller (June 27, 1880-June 1, 1968). She was a U.S. writer and educator who was blind and deaf. Keller was deprived due to her sickness of sight and hearing at 19 months, and her speech improvement soon ended as well. After five years, she was instructed by Anne Sullivan (1866-1936), who educated her on the names of objects by squeezing the manual alphabets in order into her palm. At last, Keller figured out how to read and write in Braille. She wrote many books, including The Story of My Life (1902), Optimism (1903), The World I Live in (1908), Light in My Darkness and My Religion (1927), Helen Keller's Journal (1938), and The Open Door (1957). Her childhood was portrayed in William Gibson's play The Miracle Worker in 1959 (film, 1962).
