Product Details


“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)
