Publisher's Summary

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 science-fiction novel. As a satire, Flatland offered pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the book's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions. In a foreword to one of the many publications of the book, noted science fiction author Isaac Asimov described Flatland as “The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions.”
The novel remains popular today and several films have been made from the story. One was a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. There were also a number of short films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and another with with Martin Sheen entitled Flatland: The Movie.
