Option – B - The

Answer :

Helen has been criticized for using the last chapter as a list of all the people who made a difference in her life. Since it is the autobiography, she used all those descriptions. She was making a realistic narration to the story of her life. She uses the letter of correspondence with all the people to give it a realistic touch.


Since all the descriptions mentioned were private, so it may sound unethical to the readers to present such personal touch. But, these days it has become a means of communication and people today are using such formal touch to make it more interesting. This autobiography is written once in the lifetime. So, what I feel is it is not wrong to include such personal touch as it had created an impact in the life in some way or the other.

Helen started reading Bible even though she couldn’t understand. But there came a time when she could understand. Later she realized that she was deaf to such beautiful harmonies around. She also remembered that on one Sunday morning she had nothing to do and how she insisted her cousin to narrate a story from the Bible. Then she herself started spelling in her hands the story of Joseph and his brothers.


But it doesn’t capture her interest for no reason. The language and the repetition in the story made it imaginary and she fell asleep. For her, the stories of Greeks were full of charm, and of the Bible were devoid of interest. This continues till the time she met few Greeks in Boston and she later found that they had an enthusiasm for those stories.


She really wonders how to talk about that glories that she discovered in the Bible. Further, a few years later, she realized that this is the book that is beyond comparison which gave her a sense of joy and happiness that no other books gave her.


This is how Helen’s feelings towards the Bible move from, “Somehow it failed to interest me” to, “I love it as I love no other book”
