Blind Rage: An Open Letter to Helen Keller
Kleege, Georgina
Sign Language Studies, v7 n2 p186-194 Win 2007
In a letter addressed to Helen Keller, the author discusses the frustrations of being blind in the modern-day world. She reflects on the seeming pettiness of her complaints next to the difficulties Keller would have faced, especially given all of the new technologies and accommodations available to the blind. She wonders how Keller dealt with her feelings of betrayal, injustice, and rage, and asks why it is that the disabled are asked to deal cheerfully with the additional problems they face. (Contains 1 note.)
