I am interested in topology, while I am not so comfortable with some algebraic flavored textbook on algebra. Actually, it was not until I learned some topology that I began to understand some abstract algebra. I believe that behind every algebraic theorem, there is a geometric analogue, and this is what I am interested in.

I want to find algebraic textbooks that are of geometric flavor. Say, Armstrong's book, **Groups and Symmetry** is a lovely book on group theory that is of this type. Are there some more such textbooks (on ring theory and homological algebra)?

Thank you!
