Synopsis:

Frank Bidart writes of Music Like Dirt, "I wanted to make a sequence in which the human need to make is seen as not only central but inescapable. I wanted not a tract, but a tapestry in which making is seen in the context of the other processes?sexuality, mortality?inseparable from it."

"Bidart has patiently amassed as profound and original a body of work as any now being written in this country. He has given form for our age to what is most urgent and most private in the human soul: the ordeals of solitude and mortality and hunger and, recently, that action through which being speaks: the drive to make or create. Bidart?s poems sound like no one else?s; they look like no one else?s. . . . He is, in the feeling of our jury, one of the great poets of our time."?Louise Glück, jury chair, 2001 Wallace Stevens Award The Academy of American Poets

The inaugural edition in Sarabande's Quarternote Chapbook Series which will feature a select group of poets by invitation only

Frank Bidart's collections of poetry include Desire (1997), which received the 1998 Bobbitt Prize for Poetry from the Library of Congress and the Theodore Roethke Memorial Poetry Prize, and was nominated for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Pulitzer Prize; In the Western Night: Collected Poems 1965-90 (1990); The Sacrifice (1983); The Book of the Body (1977); and Golden State (1973). Among his many honors are the Lila Acheson Wallace/Reader?s Digest Fund Writer?s Award, the Morton Dauwen Zabel Award given by the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Shelley Award of the Poetry Society of America, and the Lannan Literary Award. He teaches at Wellesley College and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
