Description

Flatland is populated by Squares, Triangles, Circles, and Lines, all of which are strictly divided by class and gender. However, our narrator, A Square, living a practical life in this two-dimensional universe, dreams of other worlds. Perhaps A Sphere, a figure from a three-dimensional realm, can help drive home the point. But, as A Square soon discovers, educating Flatland about the shapes of things to come proves to be a dangerous infraction.

Published in 1884, Abbott's intricately imaginative novella, which became a classic in the era of Einstein, was a skewering of social hierarchy that inspired Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, and anyone who dared to think - literally - outside the box.

AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to listen to a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature's most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.

Revised edition: Previously published as Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, this edition of Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Somewhat difficult to understand, but interesting

This book primarily describes a society (Flatland) where people are geometric shapes. It explains their culture and the last part describes what happens when a citizen is exposed to other lands with different societal norms and understandings about shapes and the true nature of their society. I found the constant descriptions of geometry hard to visualize at times, but it was interesting and a bit weird - which I like.

Awesome story!

Basic geometry and such tells tale of oppression and alternative facets. Beautiful in many ways.
