Summary

The Emma Goldman papers feature over 300 letters, primarily written by Emma Goldman, although other anarchists, activists and thinkers are represented as authors. The collection includes typescript drafts of articles and letters by anarchists, publications, press releases, and ephemera. Many of the letter recipients are unnamed (as "Comrade") but the majority of the letters were directed to Thomas H. Keell, compositor and editor for the anarchist periodical Freedom. Museum Audiobooks strives to present audiobook versions of authentic, unabridged historical texts from prior eras which contain a variety of points of view. The texts do not represent the views or opinions of Museum Audiobooks, and in certain cases may contain perspectives or language that is objectionable to the modern listener.

The World I Live In

Summary

First published in 1908, The World I Live In by Helen Keller is a classic testament to hope and optimism. The book is a collection of inspiring essays offering insight into the world of an extraordinary achiever who was born deaf and blind. The work reveals her impressions of the world through her sense of touch, smell, and vibration, as well as her dreams and imagination. She explains how the whole spectrum of the senses lies open to her through the medium of language.  Considered as Helen Keller's most personal and moving work, The World I Live In is a poignant account of her experience of the beauty of life.

Summary

In this pamphlet, Emma Goldman outlines her beliefs on property, the church, love and marriage, and violence. She states that students of the history of progressive thought are well aware that every idea in its early stages has been misrepresented and that the adherents of such ideas have been maligned and persecuted. In conclusion, Goldman claims that only anarchism makes nonauthoritarian organization a reality, since it abolishes the existing antagonism between individuals and classes.
