Bram Dijkstra (born 5 July 1938) is a retired professor of English literature and the author of seven books on literary and artistic subjects.

He joined the faculty of the University of California, San Diego in 1966, and taught there until he retired and became an emeritus (retired professor who still holds the title) in 2000.

He is the author of seven books on literary and artistic subjects. These include:

but he is probably best known for two books that have escaped the academic world into the world of popular culture:

books which discuss vamp imagery, femmes fatales, and similar threatening images of female sexuality in a number of works of literature and art. In comedian Steve Martin's short novel Shopgirl, Martin's heroine claims that Idols of Perversity is her favourite book.
