The Modernist Corpse unearths the critically important but previously buried life of the corpse, which occupies a unique place between biology and technology, the living and the dead. Exploring the posthumous as the posthuman, Erin E. Edwards  argues that the corpse is central to understanding relations between the human and its “others,” including the animal, the machine, and the thing.
