Summary

The "tell-all" memoir takes on new meaning in the work of poet William Kloefkorn, whose accounts of the moments and movements of life touch on everything that matters, the prosaic and the profound, the extraordinary in the everyday, and the familiar in the new and strange. The fourth and final instalment in Kloefkorn's reflections,Breathing in the Fullness of Time, departs from the elements ruling the other volumes-water, fire, and earth-and floats its insights and observations, its memories and anecdotes on the now wild, now whispering element of air. "Kloefkorn is a consummate storyteller,"Publishers Weeklyhas said, noting his "keen eye and a gift for language that is beautiful in its simplicity." In this final volume, the poet uses those skills and his characteristically droll sense of humour to recapture time that, once experienced, is never really lost. His remembrances include a foray into college football, a stint in the Marines, a drift in a twelve-foot johnboat on the Loup River, learning to get a hog's attention, marriage at last to a childhood sweetheart, a sojourn in California, and a return to Nebraska to teach. The moments, large and small, sad and funny and fine, multiply to become a moving picture of life caught in the act of passing by.
