Another gem by Shanaya Stephens, Love gospel be thy, Queen, is an enriching, enlightening and excellent collection of poetry divided into three sections – Queer, Reflections and Queen, each one bringing something new and unique to the book. After her Vagabond, it was evident that Shanaya Stephens has an incredible talent of expressing unequivocally in a manner that is meticulous, profound and yet, easy to follow, relate to and connect with. With her latest, this goes on to the next level. This book is a love letter to human beings for simply being. While Queer gives a detailed awakening of society, its complexities and the lovely humans that make it bright and happy, Reflections is like coming home to a cup of your favourite warm beverage after a long and tiring because it is all of us, and then there is Queen, which is a lovely, thought-provoking and splendid tribute to women. Shanaya Stephens has outdone herself with the connection she has established not only with her readers, but with humans as a whole. The level of understanding of the human existence and its very essence that Shanaya has is evident in the collection and is something that deserves a huge round of applause. An absolute must read, Love gospel be thy, Queenwill leave the reader feeling both happy and sad, full and empty, and all of this, in the most positive way possible. Shanaya writes elegantly and gracefully, and if this is the connect she has managed to establish with her readers with two incredible and moving collections, there is heaps of anticipation to know what she will come up with next.
