Frank Bidart’s NBCC Award Acceptance Speech | Work in ProgressEarly in my life Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell gave me the great gift of their friendship. The dilemma they faced at the beginning of their writing life is the same dilemma that every serious poet has faced since—how to add something to the tradition of Modernism without betraying it.- FSG's Work in Progress
Frank Bidart’s collections of poetry include Star Dust (FSG, 2005), Desire (FSG, 1997), and In the Western Night: Collected Poems 1965–90 (FSG, 1990). He has won many prizes, including the 2007 Bollingen Prize in American Poetry.
