Description

As humans re-negotiate their boundaries with the nonhuman world of animals,

inanimate entities and technological artefacts, new identities are formed and a

new epistemological and ethical approach to reality is needed. Through twelve

thought-provoking, scholarly essays, this volume analyzes works by a range of

modern and contemporary Italian authors, from Giacomo Leopardi to Elena

Ferrante, who have captured the shift from anthropocentrism and postmodernism

to posthumanism. Indeed, this is the first academic volume investigating narrative

configurations of posthuman identity in Italian literature and film.
