?This volume of essays makes a powerful argument for the distinctiveness of the

Italian contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. The contributors

to Posthumanism in Italian Literature and Film: Boundaries and Identity show how

the culture that gave the world modern European humanism has also produced

some of the most radical and searching critiques of what it is to be human in the

modern and late modern age.'

? Michael Cronin, Professor of French, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and

author of Eco-translation (2017)


?Brilliantly edited by Enrica Maria Ferrara, Posthumanism in Italian Literature and

Film expands the canon of posthumanist literary studies, enriching it with

unexpected topics and voices. In a dazzling sequence of chapters on Leopardi,

Pirandello, Elena Ferrante, Gianni Celati, Michelangelo Antonioni, and a number

of contemporary storytellers and filmmakers, the authors of this fascinating book

follow the human as it emerges from a tangle of organic and inorganic substances,

DNA and energy sources, mobile phones and microbes, technology and politics.

An engaging read, it is yet another testimony to the established presence of

Italian culture on the scene of posthumanities.'

? Serenella Iovino, Professor of Italian Studies and Environmental Humanities,

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA


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.
