Miracle Worker and the Transcendentalist : Annie Sullivan, Franklin Sanborn, and the Education of Helen Keller Hardback

Description

Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, remain two of the best-known American women.

But few people know how Sullivan came to her role as teacher of the deaf and blind Keller.

Contrasting their lives with Franklin Benjamin Sanborn, the era's prominent abolitionist, this book sheds light on the gender and disability expectations that affected the public perception of Sullivan and Keller.

This book provides a fascinating insight into class, ethnicity, gender, and disability issues in the Gilded Age and Progressive-Era America.
