The Story Of My Life


The Story of My Life is the CBSE Recommend Novel which is very  helpful to improve the reading skills of the students.

The Story of My Life was written while Helen Keller, then in her early twenties, was a student at Radcliffe college. It is a moving story of the education of a child with the extreme handicap of being deaf and blind at age of nineteen months,but most of it narrates her teaching by Anne Sullivan of the Perkins Institute for the Blind.

The story of my life is far from the cry for help that it might easily have been.The tone is one of joy.Keller emphasizes her early love of language .She recalls learning to speak before she lost her ability to see or hear and her desperate attempts to reawaken this ability . Throughtout the book, there is a strong emphasis on her love of language , especially the written world , which was , after all , one of the few ways she had of relating to the outside world.

The major emphasis of a story of my life is on work os sullivan, whom helen always in this book refers to as teacher.As subsequent writing made clearer, sullivan’s methods were far orthodox at the time. She communicated with Helen mostly by use of the manual alphabet, although lip-reading with fingers was also attempted. At the time, oral communication was almost universally stressed among educators of deaf children.

The story of my life is a tale of triumph over difficulties that would be insurmountable to most children.Keller went to become a noted author , speaker, and political activist advocating human rights for people not only with physical disabilities but also with social problems .Many of her later works were largely autobiographical, but there was always an emphasis on the inherent power of the individual to journey through life with hope . The story of my life is the first chapter in such a journey.
