What is the setting of "A Wrinkle in Time"?

Answer

"A Wrinkle in Time" begins at the Murray's New England farm on a dark and stormy night, but soon becomes a journey through space and time, first to the planet Uriel and then to the planet Camazotz where the children's father is being held captive. The protagonists travel by means of a "tesseract," a device that folds time and space, allowing travel to distant places and other times.

"A Wrinkle in Time" was written by Madeline L'Engle and first published in 1962. The book was rejected by 26 publishers before being accepted. It went on to win the John Newbery Medal as the best children's book of 1963 and is considered a classic of children's literature. Although stories about time travel were not new, "A Wrinkle in Time" was unusual among children's books for the way it blended elements of science fiction and magical fantasy and for its dark, dystopian undertones.

L'Engle continued the saga of the Murray children, eventually writing four more books in the series: "A Wind in the Door," "A Swiftly Tilting Planet," "Many Waters" and "An Acceptable Time." The word tesseract, incidentally, was first coined in 1888 by mathematician and science-fiction writer Charles Howard Hinton to describe a theoretical four-dimensional cube.
