Posthumanism in Italian Literature and Film : Boundaries and Identity Hardback
Edited by Enrica Maria Ferrara
Part of the Italian and Italian American Studies series
As humans re-negotiate their boundaries with the nonhuman world of animals,inanimate entities and technological artefacts, new identities are formed and anew epistemological and ethical approach to reality is needed.
Through twelvethought-provoking, scholarly essays, this volume analyzes works by a range ofmodern and contemporary Italian authors, from Giacomo Leopardi to ElenaFerrante, who have captured the shift from anthropocentrism and postmodernismto posthumanism.
Indeed, this is the first academic volume investigating narrativeconfigurations of posthuman identity in Italian literature and film.
