गजानन माधव मुक्तिबोध हिन्दी साहित्य के प्रमुख कवि, आलोचक, निबंधकार, कहानीकार तथा उपन्यासकार थे। उन्हें प्रगतिशील कविता और नयी कविता के बीच का एक सेतु भी माना जाता है।

मुक्तिबोध तारसप्तक के पहले कवि थे। मनुष्य की अस्मिता, आत्मसंघर्ष और प्रखर राजनैतिक चेतना से समृद्ध उनकी कविता पहली बार ‘तार सप्तक’ के माध्यम से सामने आई, लेकिन उनका कोई स्वतंत्र काव्य-संग्रह उनके जीवनकाल में प्रकाशित नहीं हो पाया।
