Usurper Kings is an inspection of the feminine through time.
Sapha Burnell's large scale poetic debut on the surface, is a poetry collection in five Acts. However, without each poem's strength and individual beauty at that exact placement, the entire structure would fold in on itself. Move a piece, and the laws governing the works are turned on their heads. Without each work proclaiming its necessity, obstinate in its existence, Usurper Kings would serve no purpose, and become a litany of words rather than a treatise on cosmology and feminism throughout time and beyond our scope. Available now in the popular digital formats and paperback.
A Poetry Collection in five acts, Usurper Kings is Sapha Burnell's first solo project. Part art, part essay on cosmology and feminism throughout the ages, Usurper Kingsstarts at the Big Bang and ends with a chill crawling up the spine.
