Edwin A. Abbott

a.k.a. Edwin Abbott Abbott

Author Code: EEAA

Born: Dec. 20, 1838 - Marylebone, London, England

Died: Oct. 12, 1926 - Hampstead, England

Educated at the City of London School and St.John's College, Cambridge where he graduated in 1861 and became a fellow of the college. He was ordained a deacon in the same year and became a priest in 1863. He taught at King Edward's School in Birmingham and then at Clifton College before being appointed headmaster of the City of London School in 1865. He held that post until his early retirement after 24 years. In 1889 he began to concentrate his time on writing. He had already published scholarly works as early as 1870 with Shakespearean Grammar. He was also an expert on the writings of Francis Bacon. The work by which Abbott is best known is Flatland:A Romance of Many Dimensions (1884). The work was Abbott's attempt to popularize multidimensional geometry, but is seen by many as a work of science (or mathematical) fiction. It has inspired many science fiction writers since and has been reprinted numerous times. Abbott died of influenza at the age of 87. His other works include English Lessons for English People (1871), How to Write Clearly (1872), Bacon and Essex (1877), Philochristus (1878), Onesimus: Memoirs of a Disciple of Paul (1882), Johannine Vocabulary (1905), Johannine Grammar (1906) and Silanus the Christian (1906).
