Summary

First published in 1908, The World I Live In by Helen Keller is a classic testament to hope and optimism. The book is a collection of inspiring essays offering insight into the world of an extraordinary achiever who was born deaf and blind. The work reveals her impressions of the world through her sense of touch, smell, and vibration, as well as her dreams and imagination. She explains how the whole spectrum of the senses lies open to her through the medium of language. 

Considered as Helen Keller's most personal and moving work, The World I Live In is a poignant account of her experience of the beauty of life.

A Classic by a Remarkable Woman

At first it was a little strange, and seemed like poetry rather than a memory but the narrator does a splendid job of maintaining cadence that drawers you deeper into listening to Hellen Keller describe how she came to relate to the world. it's fascinating and you're left with renewed awe at the astonishing legacy she left and also makes you curious to go find a biography of Annie Sullivan, "teacher"!
