Deaf, blind, and mute twelve-year-old Helen  Keller was like a wild animal. Scared out of her wits  but still murderously strong, she clawed and  struggled against all who tried to help her.  Half-blind herself but blessed with fanatical dedication,  Annie Sullivan began a titanic struggle to release  the young girl from the terrifying prison of  eternal darkness and silence.

display_description A text of the television play set in the 1880s, intended for reading, of Anne Sullivan Macy's attempts to teach her pupil, Helen Keller, to communicate. Based on the remarkable true story of Helen Keller and her teacher Annie Sullivan, this inspiring and unforgettable play has moved countless readers and become an American classic. Young Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute since infancy, is in danger of being sent to an institution because her inability to communicate has left her frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institute, which sends them a "half-blind Yankee schoolgirl" name Annie Sullivan to tutor their daughter. Despite the Kellers' resistance and the belief that Helen "is like a little safe, locked, that no one can open," Annie suspects that within Helen lies the potential for more, if only she can reach her. Through persistence, love, and sheer stubbornness, Annie breaks through Helen's walls of silence and darkness and teaches her to communicate, bringing her into the world at last. - Back cover.
