Zsolt Beöthy (4 September 1848, in Buda – 18 April 1922, in Budapest) was a Hungarian literary historian, critic, professor, member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and the secretary then chairman of Kisfaludy Society. A conservative-minded literature critic, he was one of the leading figures in Hungarian literature at the turn of the 19th century.

He taught from the beginning at a school from 1875 to 1882 and then as a university lecturer from 1878 to until his death at universities including the University of Budapest (again, now Eötvös Loránd University).
