From Homer to Helen Keller, and from the invention of braille to the science of echolocation, M. Leona Godin presents a cultural history of blindness, interweaving it with her own story of losing her sight. Noting the association of blindness with gifted artists (John Milton, Stevie Wonder, and Jorge Luis Borges), Godin traces how it has been portrayed in King Lear, Dune, Daredevil, and the Star Wars saga, while finding that our ideas about sight and blindness have fallen prey to misunderstandings, assumptions, and clichés.
