Vincent Weitoish Edmondson - 3rd January 2 2003 Flatland is a very interesting and thought-provoking book about A Squares adventures in lands of different dimensions A Square a mathematician in a two-dimensional world visits Spaceland a land of three-dimension Lineland a land of one dimension and Pointland a land of no dimensions The book begins when A Square tells us about flatland what it is and its history He begins by telling us what Flatland and its people look like He says that every offspring has one more side than its father so a square will have a pentagon as a son Also the women are just lines and are very dangerous because they ca kill people with their point He tells us of the different classes that the people of Flatland are divided into the lowest being the triangles with a few exceptions the isosceles and equilateral are higher in class then the squares pentagons hexagons etc Ultimately leading up to the circles which are the priests but can only be seen as short lines This leads to the dispute over the Universal Color Bill After telling us about the people of Flatland A Square tells us about the history and politics of Flatland He tells us about the role of color in Flatland In the past there was a burst of color in Flatland with people coloring themselves so you could tell which side you are looking at easier But that didnt last long soon Flatland lost its color again But now the isosceles triangles which are gaining more power every day proposed the Universal Color Bill This started a great debate because the bill proposed coloring women red and green but also coloring the priests which are circles therefore appearing to Flatlanders as shorter lines than the average women This means women could parade around as circles doing as they please and the actual priests would take the heat Most circles
