Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

Flatland is a satirical novel commenting on the hierarchy of Victorian culture. But today, the novel is most known for its exploration of the dimensions. Readers imagine a 2D world and eventually visualize the surprise of a 3D visitor. Laurel used the beginning of Flatland (whose full text is available on Project Gutenberg) in her birthday note.
