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
