Eich is a German poet, playwright, and author of radio plays. He writes of the disillusionment of the postwar period in Germany in poetry and plays that are subtle psychological explorations of dreams and the subconscious. It is as a radio dramatist that Eich is best known; he is considered to have made radio drama a respectable literary genre through his imaginative plays.
