Forward, Backwards, and Sideways: Ringworld’s place in Known Space

Republibot 3.0's picture

Art does not exist in a vacuum. Even the most self-contained of works, be they painting, sculpture, or literature, are part of the spirit of their time. Good art can be appreciated simply based on its mere existence, and what it says about itself. A grasp of the larger context in which it was created, however, can make it possible to understand it a bit better, as well as appreciating it.
