Helen Keller Book & Bracelet
Out of print for nearly a century, The World I Live In is a personal and deeply spiritual work. Here this preternaturally gifted deaf and blind young woman closely describes her sensations and the workings of her imagination. This new edition also includes her early essay "Optimism," as well as her first published work, "My Story," written when she was twelve.
The lovely bracelet cuff in sterling silver is adorned with the words, "The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." This eloquent quotation is from an 1891 letter Helen Keller wrote appealing for funds to send a poor deaf and blind boy to the Perkins School, where Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan, was trained. Helen Keller was eleven years old when she wrote the letter.
