This chapter takes a look at the condition of the blind, and also examines some stories where blind characters demonstrate fortitude and dramatise ethical and spiritual questions. It notes that while these stories may not show the philosophical goals of the other treatments of the blind from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, they still show a modern fascination with the blind and their experiences.
