Imagine a two-dimensional world, a flat plane on which squares, circles, and triangles slide. This is the world of Flatland. Join a humble square as he describes his flat world and his adventures into the three dimensional world of ‘Space,’ as well as visits to the one-dimensional and no-dimensional worlds of Lineland and Pointland. While this novella is most often used to introduced students to visualizing higher dimensional spaces, Abbott also used it as a critique of the social inequalities of his time. In addition to physical copies, the W.I. Dykes Library has audio and ebook versions of Flatland.--Billy
