"With delicacy and a refined lyricism, The Minstrel's Song embarks upon ancient and modern themes like the meaning of language and poetry, the presence and absence of life and the purpose of Faith. Alyssa A. Lappen is able to navigate with courage in the complexity of her questioning and visionary understanding of life’s ephemeral ways. She is a poet of great wisdom and her voice is both soft and courageous." --Marjorie Agosín, poet, author, essayist and winner of Chile's Gabriela Mistral Medal of Honor for Life Achievement "Some poems call attention to themselves like a street hawker in a people-flooded market. Indeed, some poets call attention to themselves, banging the drum of their ego. Alyssa A. Lappen’s poems, like her good self, are quieter; and the integrity of her poetic voice is strengthened by the fact that she communicates via a calm and reflective intelligence." ---Peter Thabit Jones, Welsh poet and author, with Aeronwy Thomas, of the "Dylan Thomas Walking Tour of Greenwich Village, New York"
