Irene Marques has taught African and Caribbean literatures, comparative and world literature, literary theory, and writing and rhetoric at the Ontario College of Art and Design University and the University of Toronto for over 10 years. She has also worked at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health for 14 years. Aside from academic publications, she is the author of two other English-language poetry collections Wearing Glasses of Water and The Perfect Unravelling of the Spirit and the Portuguese short story collection, Habitando na Metafora do Tempo: Cronicas Desejadas (Dwelling in the Metaphor of Time: Desired Chronicles).
Call this fat poetry, not thin. At its best it reminds me of the magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez: everything writ large and interconnected. Marques continually welcomes us into her world with poetic leis and figurative dances ?Marques has a clear ability to turn a poem and make it her own. ?Arc: Canada's National Poetry Magazine
