Overview: Flatland: A Romance in Many Dimensions

"Imagine a vast sheet of paper on which Lines, Triangles, Squares, Pentagons, Hexagons, and other figures, instead of remaining fixed in their places, move freely about, on or in the surface, but without the power of rising above or sinking below it … and you will have a pretty correct notion of my country and countrymen." <br><br>Narrated by A. Square, <b>Flatland</b> is Edwin A. Abbott's delightful mathematical fantasy about life in a two-dimensional world. All existence is limited to length and breadth in Flatland, its inhabitants unable even to imagine a third dimension. Abbott's amiable narrator provides an overview of this fantastic world-its physics and metaphysics, its history, customs, and religious beliefs. But when a strange visitor mysteriously appears and transports the incredulous Flatlander to the Land of Three Dimensions, his worldview is forever shattered. <br><br>Written more than a century ago, <b>Flatland</b> conceals within its brilliant parody of Victorian society speculations about the universe that resonate in Einstein's theory of relativity as well as the current "string-theory" of nature. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br> <br>

  1.  Highly recommended !! 20 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    One of the Best Classic I have ever read.
    The author has done an intricate job of describing real world problems such as racial bigotry, status of woman in the society etc in a fictional yet true two dimensional world.
    Imagine a world without third dimension - A two dimensional world a Flatland - whose residents are geometrical figures such as triangles, squares, pentagon and so on to the circles - who are priests(the perfects). Where the status of people in society is based on the regularity of the shape and the number of sides they have - the more will be sides the higher will be the status - just like our own society, rich, poor and middle class. One day there comes a stranger from different land - the lands of third dimension - to enlighten the citizen of flatland about the world beyond Flatland, how would you react ?
    Highly recommended !!
