Helen Adams Keller (1880-1968) was a deafblind American author, activist and lecturer. At nineteen months of age she came down with an illness, which, though it did not last for a particularly long time, left her deaf and blind. By age seven, she had invented over sixty different signs that she could use to communicate with her family. Graham Bell advised her parents to contact the Perkins Institute for the Blind, and the school delegated teacher and former student, Anne Sullivan (1866-1936), herself visually impaired and then only 20 years old, to become Helen's teacher. It was the beginning of a 49-year-long relationship. Helen Keller went on to become a world famous speaker and author. In total, she wrote twelve books and authored numerous articles. She is also remembered as an advocate for people with disabilities, as well as numerous causes. Keller wrote an autobiography called The Story of My Life, which was published in 1903, with the help of Anne Sullivan and Anne's husband John Macy. It includes letters that Helen wrote and the story of her life up to age 21.

About the Author :

Helen Keller is Professor of Constitutional, European and Public International Law at the University of Zurich. She served as a member of the UN Human Rights Committee from 2008 until 2011, when she was elected as a judge at the European Court of Human Rights.

Review :

"Roger Shattuck’s striking new edition of The World I Live In, a sparkling work too long obscured, renews Helen Keller for all generations—for the steadfast admirers of her art, and particularly for readers not yet acquainted with the sightless genius who taught the world the majesty of her insight. The World I Live In brings us intimately close, in her own valiant words, to the mind of a woman for whom language was life."
— Cynthia Ozick

"While Helen Keller is better known for The Story of My Life, her later book, The World I Live In, is a warmer, more intimate and more beautiful work, one in which we encounter Helen Keller’s remarkable imagination, her originality, and her power as a literary artist. She comes alive here, vividly and idiosyncratically, more than in any other of her writings."
— Oliver Sacks

"An astounding account, enhanced further by Roger Shattuck’s excellent introduction in which he explores the implications of her experience."
The Observer

"An affirmation of the fact that real miracles are the product of human endeavour and inspiration"
Times Educational Supplement (London)
