This essay is a considered a watershed moment in which transcendentalism became a major cultural movement. An American classic.

    Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions, for which the novella is still popular amongst mathematics, physics, and computer science students. Several films have been made from the story, including a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and a short film with Martin Sheen titled Flatland: The Movie.

    Body language is an essential part of all face-to-face communication and is of central importance in determining the way that we connect with and respond to others around us. The secret signs and messages that are conveyed by non-verbal communication have been proven to be more important that the words we say or even the way in which we say them. Why is it then that so many of us are unaware of the signals we are sending and receiving through the complexities of our body language?

    When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby in the early 1920s, the American Dream was already on the skids. Originally based on the idea that the pursuit of happiness involves not only material success, but moral and spiritual growth, the dream had, by Fitzgerald's time, become increasingly focused on money and pleasure - a phenomenon with which the high-living writer was all too familiar.
