          Sinopsis
          Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novel. 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 story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides. 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. Flatland has often been categorized as science fiction although it could more precisely be called "mathematical fiction". With the advent of modern science fiction from the 1950s to the present day, Flatland has seen a revival in popularity, especially among science fiction and cyberpunk fans. Many works have been inspired by the novella, including novel sequels and short films.
          Acerca de Edwin A. Abbott

          Edwin Abbott Abbott (1838-1926) was educated at the City of London School and at St John's College, Cambridge, where he was senior classics fellow and a college fellow. After ordination and marriage he was appointed, when only twenty-six, to head his old school, which he served from 1865 to 1889, becoming one of the most celebrated headmasters of his age. A teacher of genius, he inspired a procession of able pupils who were to make their mark in a wide range of subjects and professions; the most notable was probably H. H. Asquith, who became Prime Minister in 1908. Under Abbott the school pioneered the teaching of such subjects as comparative philology, chemistry and English literature. Besides teaching, Abbott's vocation lay in writing, which he retired at fifty in order to pursue, publishing works on Shakespeare and Bacon as well as a number of both scholarly and speculative books representing liberal views in matters of religious belief which were well in advance of the great majority of his contemporaries.
