Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novella by the English schoolmaster and clergyman Edwin Abbott Abbott.The story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides.Written pseudonymously by A Square, the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novellas more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.This masterpiece of science (and mathematical) fiction is a delightfully unique and highly entertaining satire that has charmed readers for more than 100 years.With Illustrations by the Author, A SQUARE (Edwin A. Abbott)& Modern illustrations by D. Fisher.
