Price: $2.99
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novel by the English schoolmaster Edwin A. Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "a Square", Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions, for which the novella is still popular amongst mathematics, physics, and computer science students. In Flatland Abbott describes a society rigidly divided in classes. Social ascent is the main aspiration of its inhabitants, apparently granted to everyone but in reality strictly controlled by the few that are already positioned at the top of the hierarchy. Freedom is despised, laws are cruel. Innovators are either imprisoned or suppressed. This world, as ours, is not prepared to receive 'Revelations from another world'.
