In the play The Miracle Worker, Annie says to Kate "Mrs. Keller, I
don't think Helen's worst handicap is deafness or blindness. I think it's
your love. And your pity." In my opinion this means Mrs. Keller has
babied Helen all these years and now she is a spoiled little brat. This is
what Helen's problem is. Not her blindness, or her deafness. This is
preventing Annie from teaching this child. For example, when Annie
showed first 75 words of 248 total
showed last 75 words of 248 total
I were her I would probably
feel sorry for her too, and I would love her just like Mrs. Keller does,
but I would not have let the situation go this far. I would have stopped
it and gotten a good teacher long before it had gotten this bad.
Annie had trouble at first but when she starts getting through to
Mrs. Keller and Helen, she really started to work miracles.
