Answer :

When Helen entered Radcliffe, she discovered quite soon that college was not quite the romantic place she had imagined. She gradually realized there were disadvantages in going to college. The one she felt most was — lack of time. She used to have time to think and reflect and enjoy some leisure moments in which she heard the words of some loved poet, which would touch a deep, sweet chord in her soul. But in college, there was no time to commune with one’s thoughts. She realized as one enters the portals of learning, one is forced to desert one’s dearest solitude, books, and imagination. She supposed she ought to find some comfort in the thought that she was laying up treasures for future enjoyment but then she says—”… but I am improvident enough to prefer present joy to hoarding riches against a rainy day.”


Martha Washington was the child of the cook of the Keller household. During Anne’s childhood she was one of Helen’s constant companions. Martha understood Helen’s signs and she (Helen) seldom had any difficulty in making her do just as she wished. It pleased Helen to dominate over her and Martha mostly submitted to her unfair domination. This clearly reveals that Martha was rather meek and docile and she avoided risking a first hand encounter with a strong and hyperactive girl like Helen. Like Helen, Martha too had a great love for mischief. They spent a great deal of time with each other in the kitchen also where they kneaded dough balls, grinded coffee, quarreled over the cake bowl etc.
