Edmund Wilson (May 8, 1895 – June 12, 1972) was an American writer and critic who explored Freudian and Marxist themes. He influenced many American authors, including F.

His scheme for a Library of America series of national classic works came to fruition through the efforts of Jason Epstein after Wilson's death.
