For twelve years the German language had been in the service of the Nazis, the instrument of their propaganda. Many German writers had been killed or driven into exile. Eich was part of a generation that grappled with the challenge of how to renew the language and forge a post-war literature. Pigeons and Moles offers a selection from Eichs bitter and graceful poems, his acclaimed radio plays and the controversial late prose poems.
