Inhaltsangabe: Now, one hundred years after its initial publication, eminent literary scholar Roger Shattuck, in collaboration with Keller biographer Dorothy Herrmann, has reedited the book to reflect more accurately its original composition. Keller's remarkable acquisition of language is presented here in three successive accounts: Keller's own version; the letters of "teacher" Anne Sullivan, submerged in the earliest edition; and the valuable documentation by their young assistant, John Macy. Including opening and closing commentary by Shattuck and notes by Hermann, this volume will stand for years as the definitive edition of a classic work.
Inhaltsangabe: In The Story of My Life, Helen Keller tells the extraordinary tale of her childhood and her mentor, teacher, and companion Anne Sullivan. Before she was two years old, the otherwise healthy Helen became ill with an unidentified condition from which she recovered?but not without losing both her sight and hearing completely. Helen?s inability to communicate beyond a few rudimentary signs became a source of despair for the Keller family until a young and ambitious Anne Sullivan was asked to become Helen?s personal instructor. Helen?s incredible true story is an inspiration to anyone who has faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
