Teacher: Anne Sullivan Macy; a tribute by the foster-child of her mind by Helen Keller( Book )

38 editions published between 1955 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute, was six years old, a young woman named Anne Sullivan entered her life. The daughter of Irish immigrants, Miss Sullivan was poor, ill, and nearly blind herself. She was inexperienced as a teacher. Yet she had the relentless vitality that was to force her pupil's unwilling mind from the depths of unconsciousness. To attempt to reach the intelligence of a young girl who fought the dark, silent world about her with temper tantrums and stubbornness--this was no project for an inexperienced young woman. But Anne Sullivan refused to admit defeat. When Helen was nine Miss Sullivan's untiring efforts were rewarded; her pupil was able to speak the words "I am not dumb now." It was one of the most dramatic achievements in the history of teaching. The introduction to this book outlines briefly the lives of these two vital women--their early life together as teacher and pupil, Helen's years at Radcliffe, the vaudeville tours and Hollywood movie, and their long association with the American Foundation for the Blind--to provide a background for this remarkable, inspiring biography by Helen Keller of her great teacher."--Dust jacket
My religion by Helen Keller( Book )

53 editions published between 1927 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helen Keller had absolutely no hearing or eyesight from the age of two, but became one of the most inspiring and well known people to have ever lived. For a number of years she functioned, in her words, simply as "an unconscious clod of earth." Then quite suddenly, she experienced the impact of "another mind" within her own. Despite not knowing where it came from or how it got there, she awoke to a new awareness of being able to talk and listen with her hands. She learned to read and write, wrote at least ten books, and attended college. Her religion developed from living deeply within her spiritual self, cut off from normal sensation, and spending her life on a spiritual plane. She incorporated her own experiences with the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg, a mystic born in 1688, and the Swedenborgian Church. Swedenborg, like Keller, had experienced other realms of spirit and transmitted deeper teachings that Helen saw with great clarity. She wrote this book after receiving many requests for her to describe her religious beliefs

Helen Keller overcame the seemingly insurmountable obstacles of deafness and blindness to become an icon of perseverance, respected and honored by readers, historians, and activists. Her autobiography The Story of My Life, published in the United States in 1903, is still read today for its ability to motivate and reassure readers. Helen began working on The Story of My Life while a student at Radcliffe College with help from John Albert Macy, a Harvard professor and future husband of Helen's first teacher and lifelong companion, Anne Sullivan. In the book Keller recounts the first twenty-two years of her life, from her early childhood illness that left her blind and deaf through her second year at Radcliffe College
