Reading the book "Deewan-e-Shaafi"

Q: I was reading a book named "Diwaan e Shafi'i". Kindly guide me about its authenticity.

Should one read it and believe that all this book contains are authentic poems of one of four jurisprudents of Ahlas Sunnah (Imam Muhammad Ibn Idrīs al Shafiʿi)?

A: You may read it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
