The autobiography of this extraordinary deaf-blind woman was written while she was in college with the help of her governess Anne Sullivan and her husband John Macy. Helen Keller (1880-1968) narrates her life up to 1901 in a simple, direct, pleasant, close and very careful style. The second part of the book contains the letters she wrote from 1887 to 1901.
It is a testimony of fortitude, love of knowledge and life, resilience in the face of very serious difficulties that leads the reader to profound questions and considerations about the capacity of human beings to overcome obstacles with the help of others. She repeats at different moments of her existence that she is happy and this is corroborated by the facts. I highly recommend reading it.
