Overview

Aphelion is about distances, simultaneously belonging to two countries but being rooted in neither. In her first collection, poet Jenna Butler fluently explores this rift, sounding out the meaning of home from the perspective of a British-born Canadian. Written in experimental free verse and containing a selection of anti ghazals, Aphelion's subject matter, physical appearance on the page, and the way it is read aloud all reflect these elemental distances.
