Seller Inventory GI3N Published by Independently Published, United States Edwin Abbott Abbott illustrator. 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.
The narrator is a square named A Square, a member of the caste of gentlemen and professionals, who guides the readers through some of the implications of life in two dimensions. The first half of the story goes through the practicalities of existing in a two-dimensional universe as well as a history leading up to the year on the eve of the 3rd Millennium. On New Year's Eve, the Square dreams about a visit to a one-dimensional world Lineland inhabited by "lustrous points.
Thus, the Square attempts to convince the realm's monarch of a second dimension; but is unable to do so.
In the end, the monarch of Lineland tries to kill A Square rather than tolerate his nonsense any further. Following this vision, he is himself visited by a three-dimensional sphere named A Sphere. Similar to the "points" in Lineland, the Square is unable to see the sphere as anything other than a circle. The Sphere then levitates up and down through the Flatland, allowing Square to see the circle expand and retract. The Square is not fully convinced until he sees Spaceland a tridimensional world for himself. His parents were first cousins.
