The Story of My Life by Helen Keller

Into the Wild

The Story of My Life Read Online Free - An American classic rediscovered by each generation, The Story of My Life is Helen Keller’s account of her triumph over deafness and blindness. Popularized by the stage play and movie The Miracle Worker, Keller’s story has become a symbol of hope for people all over the world.

This book–published when Keller was only twenty-two–portrays the wild child who is locked in the dark and silent prison of her own body. With an extraordinary immediacy, Keller reveals her frustrations and rage, and takes the reader on the unforgettable journey of her education and breakthroughs into the world of communication. From the moment Keller recognizes the word “water” when her teacher finger-spells the letters, we share her triumph as “that living word awakened my soul, gave it light, hope, joy, set it free!” An unparalleled chronicle of courage, The Story of My Life remains startlingly fresh and vital more than a century after its first publication, a timeless testament to an indomitable will.

I just wish I had half her eagerness to learn, and even a smidgeon of her abilities, resilience, joie de vivre and determination. While reading, I was constantly wondering, how can a blind and deaf person exhibit such rich vocabulary and such detailed images of the world around us? Hope nothing's...

إنني أتذكر ذلك الصباح الذي سألت فيه لأول مرة عن معنى كلمة (حب ) ، وكان ذلك قبل أن أتعلم الكثير من الكلمات ، دعوني أحكي لكم هذه الواقعة ، فقد وجدت بعض أزهار الربيع المبكرة الظهور في الحديقة ، فاحضرتها إلى معلمتي ، فحاولت بدورها أن تقبلني كنوع من التعبير عن الأمتنان ، لكن في ذلك الوقت لم أكن أرغب...
