Helen Keller

 

  When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller (1880–1968) suffered a severe illness that left her blind and deaf. Not long after, she also became mute. Her tenacious struggle to overcome these handicaps-with the help of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan-is one of the great stories of human courage and dedication.

 

In this classic autobiography, first published in 1903, Miss Keller recounts the first 22 years of her life, including the magical moment at the water pump when, recognizing the connection between the word “water” and the cold liquid flowing over her hand, she realized that objects had names.

 

Subsequent experiences were equally noteworthy: her joy at eventually learning to speak, her friendships with Oliver Wendell Holmes, Edward Everett Hale and other notables, her education at Radcliffe (from which she graduated cum laude), and-underlying all-her extraordinary relationship with Miss Sullivan, who showed a remarkable genius for communicating with her eager and quick-to-learn pupil.

About the Author

Helen Adams Keller was born healthy on 27 June 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, to Arthur H. Keller and Kate Adams. Struck by a terrible illness when she was barely nineteen months old, Helen was left blind and deaf for life. at the age of six, Keller was referred to Alexander Graham Bell by the physician, J. Julian Chisolm.
Helen Adams Keller is now known as an American author, political activist and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. the story of how Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film the Miracle Worker.
A prolific author, Keller was well-traveled and outspoken in her convictions.
