Austrian literature is the German language literature written in Austria. We can speak about Austrian literature in the strict sense from the year 1803 on when Francis II disbanded Holy Roman Empire and established Austrian Empire. A more liberal definition incorporates all the literary works written on the territory of historical Austria and German speaking authors who were tightly connected with the country. The Austrian literature must be considered in close connection with German literature in general and the borderline between proper German literature and the Austrian one is fuzzy.

This is a list of Austrian writers and poets.
