Description

This mind-bending early science fiction classic imagines life in a 2-dimensional world. It's a universe populated by lines, squares, and circles, whose perfect flatness creates all new definitions of life, art, and society. Edwin A. Abbott, writing under the pseudonym of "A Square," combines scathing social satire with a brilliant examination on how we all accept our limits of perception, and how much people who transcend these perceptions are often met with resistance.

Reviews

  • Good ideas for its time.

    Nice combination of mathematical ideas but not really a plot! Language is quite flowery compared with modern SF.
