More Description

Kloefkorn, state poet of Nebraska, transforms everyday activities and thoughts into significant acts and clarifies the existence of the past within the present.
"Kloefkorn has that most difficult thing of all for a poet to attain-a recognizable, strong, attractive voice. Essentially, it is that quality that makes a body of poetry distinctive. And distinctive is simply another word for irreplaceable."-"Prairie Schooner"
