Description
Information
Introduction by Alan Lightman.

FLATLAND has fascinated generations of readers. It is a deft mixture of social satire and science fiction that continues to pose provocative questions about perception and reality. FLATLAND is a brilliant parody of Victorian society where all existence is limited to length and breadth - its inhabitants unable even to imagine a third dimension. The amiable narrator, A Square, 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 world view is forever shattered.
