Author of the unpublished masterpiece PROTEAN NotUnTitled: The Philosophical Cantos (copyright 2000 Library of Congress), Carol Maric has presented the manuscript thus far to only a few, including Harold Bloom and Jacques Derrida, who had favorable comments. The work is akin to late James Joyce with Nietzschean poetics, highly baroque, and deeply complex in its content and language--an original extension of the English language, elucidating the ambiguities of various extremities of mind. This is the sort of book in which an author's work might culminate, yet it is a first work.
Maric has since been writing a surrealist novel for several years, as well as another book of poetry, and essays; future works include books of philosophy, micro fiction, and the (under construction) online literary journal alidade review; etc. She is also a multifaceted musician (electric cello, violin, and voice), and visual artist.
Stance on Writing & Publishing: " No Editing Allowed, except one's own volitionally (otherwise known as crafting), is an uncompromising stipulation of mine; It is either In or Out--Curators, Not Editors. "
