(p.170) Conclusion: ‘Upward, Yet Not Northward’
Scenes from the Suburbs

Timotheus Vermeulen

Edinburgh University Press

“Upward, yet not northward”, Edward Abbott ends his novel Flatland. In the novel, a creature finds out that there are more dimensions than the two he has hitherto been living. He realizes that he can move upwards, without moving northward. This conclusion seeks to add a dimension to the currently two-dimensional debate on the representation of the suburb by pulling together the various dimensions the book has explored.

Keywords:   Flatland, Two-dimensionality, Three-dimensionality, Suburban complexity
