REVIEW: ‘BLACK ROSE IS A SOULFUL MEDITATION OF LOVE AND ROMANCE, A FEMINIST MUSING’
Black Rose is segmented into five phases which is the petals, thorns, leaves, stem and roots – symbolizing love, pain, compassion, strength and one’s culture and religion. It contains poems, prose and aphorisms and you will definitely find yourself represented in one, some or even all the pages.
Black Rose relates to a person in love, to a person being heartbroken, to a person who was accused, ridiculed, misconstrued by the society, time and again, slavery, oppression, to people who remain humane and compassionate, despite all they have been through. In it, the author also explores how some cultural norms and religious sentiments are sometimes used to hinder a woman’s growth, alter her dreams and kill her ambitions.
Black Rose is a soulful meditation of love and romance, a feministic musing and a mindful search of identity by a woman who is overshadowed in a world immersed in patriarchy and male hegemony.
