Günter Eich (1907–1972) was a member of Gruppe 47 and one of the leading postwar German poets. He won the Hörspielpreis der Kriegsblinden in 1953, and Germany’s major literary prize, the Büchner Preis, in 1959. Michael Hofmann edited the anthology Twentieth-Century German Poetry. His translations from Günter Eich, Angina Days: Selected Poems, will be published in April. (March 2010)
