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 novella’s more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.

  1. My Flatland History

    I first read it in high school as a math project. Later, in college as a commentary on social norms for a liberal arts class; a totally different zeitgeiss.

    And so, it is recommended for the uninitiated. I profited and learned much from it. “Flatland” was also made into a movie in 2007.
